MINUTES 

OF THE 

TENTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 

OF THE 

United Daughters of the Confederacy. 

NORTH ( AROLINA DIVISION. 



FIRST DAY. -Morning Session. 

The Tenth Annual Convention of the North Caro- 
lina Division, United Daughters of the Confederacy 
met in the city of beautiful homes, the world renowned 
tobacco town of Durham, on Wednesday, Octobor 10, 
1906. 

The auditorium of the Southern Conservatory of 
Music had been most tastefully decorated with Confed- 
erate flags and beautiful flowers. Conspicuous in the 
back ground hung the handsome flag of the North 
Carolina Division, beneath the cotton blossom cultured 
in the five pointed star, bearing the words Love, Live, 
Pray, Think, Dare. 

The Convention call was sounded by Mr. E. T. Cheek 
on a bugle that was sounded at Bethel. This bugle is 
owned by Mr. R. T. Howerton of Durham and belonged 
to him at the famous battle that marked the beginning 
of the War between the States. Mr. Howerton was 



6 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

bugler of Company C. Third Virginia Cavalry, but was 
not on duty the day of the Bethel fight. His bugle was 
used however by the regimental bugler and after that 
Mr. Howerton used it in the war. He brought it home 
with him as a souvenir and has kept it ever since. 

Our Southland was most beautifully rendered by the 
entertaining Chapter and a touchingly appropriate 
prayer offered by Rev. T. A. Smoot. General Julian S. 
Carr then in words of eloquence and fire welcomed the 
delegates to his hospitable city. 



ADDRESS OF GEN. CARR. 

Mrs. President, ladies, members of the United Daughters 
of the Confederacy of North Carolina: 

Coriolanus, the Roman Patrician, a leading member of the Ro- 
man Senate, was impeached by the Tribunes and condemned to 
exile by the assembly of the people: "I go;" he said, "but I will 
return." 

He left Rome and made his way to Antium, the Capital of the 
Volsci, against whom he had fought bravely a few years before; 
took charge of their army and ravaged the Roman Colonies. 

Rome was very much alarmed for her safety. The people 
urged and entreated the Senate to revoke the decree of banish- 
ment. The Senators refused to compromise the dignity of Rome, 
but were finally compelled to yield. 

Reduced to extremity one embassy after another was sent to 
the haughty exile. 

He steadfastly refused to listen to the delegations, even of 
Senators or Priests, but he could not resist the reproaches of his 
mother, Veturia, and the tears of his wife, Volumia, who led a 
delegation of matrons to his camp. He yielded to their entrea- 
ties, facing his army about, marched away and spared Rome. 
"Thou hast saved Rome," he said to his mother, "but lost thy 
son." 

The Volsci punished his defection with death. If in the 
days of Roman civilization the mot he s and wives could influence 



Unttkd Daughters of the Confederacy 7 

the advance or retreat of an army with banners, what may you, 
the dear mothers and wives and sweethearts of the Twentieth 
Century Carolinians expect of the chivalrous, knightly citizenship 
of Durham? 

I stand here to extend to you a most hearty welcome to our 
enterprising community— to our homes— our hearts— our all. 

You represent more than a sentiment. You represent the 
living, pulsing embodiment of a principle that will, no, never die. 
The spirit lives and will live in the tales we tell our children by 
the firesides, in the procession of young maidens in the Spring- 
time, when they come with beautiful flowers to garland the rest- 
ing places of our dead heroes— in the fire that lives in the soul- 
stirring notes of Dixie. 

These are in the blood. They are the testimonials of a per- 
sonal love and pride we cherish still for "the storm cradled repub- 
lic that fell." 

You denr women— the lares and penates of our dear Southern 
firesides. You are the force above and beyond all else, that have 
kept the flame alive upcn the altars of our Southern homes. God 
bless each one of you. I promise you that you are thrice wel- 
come here. 

Ladies— members of the United Daughters of the Confederacy 
— I stand in your distinguished presence, a representative of 898,- 
184 brave men, glorious sons of war, wno made the name of Dixie 
land immortal, and I appreciate the fact that your association in a 
large measure cherishes the memory, and holds in loving appre- 
ciation the men, the dignity of whose ideals, the purity of whose 
motives, the magnificence of whose courage, and the pathos of 
whose suffering constitute a story that gripes the heart-strings of 
every man or woman who esteems valor, or whose soul responds 
to patriotic endeavor. 

The war between the States was fought really by the women 
who staid at home. Had they uttered a cry, had they complain- 
ed, the morale of L a e's army would have been dissipated in a day. 
That they did not complain, that shuddering at its gruesome 
trophies, they stdl approved the war, these were the facts that 
made that army the thing it was, that kept in line the men who 
might have straggled, that nerved the charare and made the rear 
guard of retreat a snarling thing of death dealing stubbornness. 

Glorious as the picture is of the charge for the guns across 
the open spaces of the field, it required a higher valor to sustain 
the women, who, trembling at home with unspoken fears, yet 



8 M iM-TKS of Tenth Annual Convention 

sent to the front nothing but cheer and gladness, and the homely 
comforts that their hands could make. 

Who can sound to the depths, the agony that must have torn 
the breasts of these brave women, waiting at home for widow- 
hood! What words can picture the blackness of their nights, 
the shadows of their dreams, the visions that sprang by day from 
the details of their household task! And yet they bore it all 
silently, except for the prayers they uttered and the sobs that 
nature calls from women's hearts, the tears that brighten wo- 
men's eyes! 

There is a beautiful Biblical story to the effect that Joshua set 
up twelve stones in the midst of Jordan,— and the record says 
they are there until this day. And Joshua said that when your 
children ask their fathers in time to come— saying, what mean ye 
by these stones, and my hope is that somewhere a shaft of most 
beautiful and enduring marble, flawless as nature can produce and 
white as the untrodden snow, shall pierce the Empyrean. And it 
shall be a memorial among us that in time to come, when our 
children shall ask their fathers, "What mean ye by this stone," 
it shall be spoken, "that it is a token to the fidelity, the courage, 
the endurance, the loyality, the self-sacrifice and the heroism and 
the virtue of the women of the South, 1861 to 1865, representing 
as they did the finest civilization that ever lived under any flag—" 
and it should be a pleasing thought to you daughters that you can 
always point with pride to the magnificent record of your most 
worthy forebears, and be at home with any company distinguished 
for self-sacrifice or patriotism. 

How many mothers were there in those days of stress and 
storm like her of that touching interlude of Tennyson's? 

"Home they brought her warrior dead. 

She nor swooned nor uttered cry; 

All her maidens watching said, 
'She must weep or she will die. ' ' 

"Then they praised him soft and low, 
Called him worthy to be loved. 
Truest friend and noblest foe; 
Yet she never spoke nor moved. " 

"Stole a maiden from her place, 
Lightly to the warrior stepped, 
Took the face cloth from the face, 
Yet she neither moved nor wept. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 9 

Rose a nurse of ninety years, 
Set his child upon her knee- 
Like summer tempest came her tears 
"Sweet my child, I live for thee." 

And how she did live for him, that patient widowed mother of 
the South. What a man she has made of him; how she has kept 
true in his breast the best traditions of his race, how she has fed 
him, brought him up through poverty to wealth, from weakness to 
strength, to the high honor of hard work, through the indomitable 
example that she set. She has made of the sturdy manhood of 
the South, the highest product which a Christian race has yet at- 
tained. 

You, the true offspring of these dear Forbears, Heaven is my 
witness that if there is aught in the Heavens above, the Earth 
beneath, or the Waters under the Earth, in this community that 
is not freely yours for the asking and to which you are not truly 
and most heartily welcome, I am not aware of it. Be assured 
that the best we have is none too good for you. 

At the conclusion of General Carr's address Mrs. M. 
H. Jones, president of the Julian S. Carr chapter ex- 
tended to the delegates a most cordial welcome in the 
name of her chapter. 



ADDRESS OF MRS. JONES. 



Mrs. President, Ladies, Daughters of Confederacy of 
North Carolina: 

We, the Julian S. Carr chapter, of Durham, extend to you a 
hearty welcome. We are happy to be with you, we are glad to 
greet you and to meet you as a band of sisters organized to do 
honor to our noble patriots and heroes, who fought and died in a 
noble cause, the unalienable right of self-government. 

We meet to-day to pay tribute to their memories, not to en- 
courage a feeling of bitterness and strife, but to keep green the 
memory of our heroes and to transmit it to our children's children. 
We care now for those who wore the gray and who out-living the 
battlefields, returned to their desolate homes, over-powered but 



10 Minutes of Tenth Annual, Convention 

not defeated. It is our proud and chosen duty to provide for 
them a home: where they may spend their last days in ease, prov- 
ing to them that they fought not in vain for us, their true and 
grateful daughters. Each member of Mr. and Mrs. Brooks' 
large family receives their personal thought and care, in which 
attention every daughter feels most grateful. 

Again we extend to you our warmest greetings. Glad of this 
one pleasant meeting we give you welcome — thrice welcome— to 
each home. We are glad such friends to claim and write theirs 
with our hosehold names. 

A fine solo by Mrs. Osborne with chorus by three 
young men was one of the most heartfelt renditions of 
Southern music to which we have ever had the pleasure 
of listening. 

Mrs. H. A. London, President of the North Carolina 
Division in words most fitting to the occasion responded 
to these warm welcomes given us. ' 



ADDRESS OF MRS. LONDON. 



Ladies of the North Carolina Division United Daugh- 
ters of the Confederacy of the Julian S. Carr Chap- 
ter Madam President: 

The Graciousness of your welcome to this progressive city 
assures us of its sincerity. I much regret that the response to 
your greetings cannot be expressed in terms befitting so cordial 
welcome. Though I may not find words adequate to express our 
appreciation of what has been so eloquently said by Mrs. Jones 
and General Carr, yet be assured that our appreciation is none the 
less sincere. 

It is a very great pleasure for us to visit this city and it is 
eminently right and proper that the North Carolina Division of 
United Daughters of the Confederacy should hold its annual meet- 
ing in the city of Durham. It was near this city, at the historic 
Bennett house, that Generals Johnston and Sherman met and 
agreed upon the terms of the surrender of the last great army of 
the Confederacy. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 11 

While the memory of that occasion brings us sorrow and 
sadness because our brave soldiers were forced to yield to over- 
whelming numbers, yet after the lapse of so many years we recall 
with pride and pleasure, and will ever seek to perpetuate the 
memory of their heroic deeds and illustrious achievements. 

How striking is the contrast between the Durham of to-day 
and the Durham of that sad epoch. This contrast shows that 
when the Southern soldiers surrendered their arms they did not 
surrender their manhood or their energy. The present prosperity 
and wonderful growth of this city illustrates the truth of the say- 
ings that peace hath her victories no less renowned than war. 
The recuperation and upbuilding of the South fiom the devasta- 
tion of the four years' war could not have a more impressive ob- 
ject lesson than is seen by a visit to this splendid city. We here 
find among the great captains of industry, who have done so much 
for the upbuilding of the South many of the brave soldiers of the 
Confederate Army, and it is peculiarly appropriate that the Chap- 
ter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy at this place 
should bear the name of one of those great captains of industry 
who wore the gray— Julian S. Carr. 

In behalf of the North Carolina Division I thank you for 
your cordial and gracious welcome and I voice the sentiment of us 
all in saying. "We are happy to be your guests and will be loath 
to leave. " 

' 'Carolina" was then lustily sung by all present after 
which the benediction was pronounced by Rev. J. A. 
Carden. 

The Convention was called to order by the State 
President and before proceeding to regular business 
General Carr extended to the visitors, in behalf of him- 
self and wife, an invitation to attend a reception at the 
Hotel Carrolina that evening, which was accepted with 
a rising vote of thanks. Mr. W. D. Carmichael, Super- 
intendent of the city schools, then opened the doors of 
the schools to the delegates and requested the ladies to 
visit them and view their work. This invitation was 
also accepted with thanks. Mr. A. B. Stronach of 
Raleigh next told us of the beautiful busts of General 



12 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

R. E. Lee he had had made and also of General Stone- 
wall Jackson and most graciously tendered the copy- 
right of both to the Daughters of the North Carolina 
Division for use in their work. The busts were made 
in two sizes costing respectively $1.00 and 50 cents 
apiece. On motion, which was unanimously carried, 
Mr. Stronach's generous gift was accepted and a rising 
vote of thanks given him. 

The Convention was now called to order by the Pre- 
sident and the Recording Secretary called the role of 
State officers and chapters, showing 47 chapters present 
either by delegates or proxy. After roll called the 
beautiful ritual of the United Daughters of the Confed- 
eracy, which was adopted at the San Francisco Conven- 
tion, was used for the first time and the regular busi- 
ness of the Convention was begun by reading of the 
Credential committee report. 

We are able to report the following number of 
members registered and with tax paid in all chapters 
in the North Carolina Division.

Owing to the fact that two new chapters had been 
organized too late to get credential blanks, a motion was 
made and carried to allow those delegates to vote, as 
well as those whose papers had been lost in the mail in 
case the chapters had registered their members and 

paid their per capita tax. This report shows 115 votes 
to be cast in the convention. 



14 Minutes of Tenth Anntai, Convention 

THE PRESIDENT'S ANNUAL ADDRESS. 

Daughters of the Confederacy: 

To each of you I extend a loving greeting on this our tenth 
annual convention of the North Cai'olina Division of the United 
Daughters of the Confederacy. We are united in our love for a 
cause that is dear to our hearts. 

This year we have gone forward steadily and now we number 
.°)075 enthusiastic, energetic, public spirited women, being 73 
chartered chapters and 14 children's chapters, which are auxil- 
iaries o th ■ ult chapter. 

We chartered this year the following: 

Gastonia chapter, at Gastonia. 

The Currituck chapter, at Woodleigh. 

Averasboro Battle chapter, Duke. 

Albemarle chapter, Albemarle. 

J. D. Currie chapter, Clarkton. 

Randolph chapter, Asheboro, and High Point chapter. 
There are also new child chapters at Albemarle and Gastonia. 
Outside of my regular correspondence I have written many 
letters to arouse interest in our United Daughters of the Confed- 
eracy, and have worked up more chapters which could not get 
their papers filed in time to be chartered before this convention. 
They hope to send in their papers before the United Daughters of 
the Confederacy convention. I am now convinced that it is best 
to send out membership blanks and have them filled and recom- 
mended by veterans before their names are signed to the charter 
order as charter members. Hence the delay in chartering the 
above chapters. 

Many times in the enthusiasm in organizing a chapter some 
will sign their names to charters believing themselves eligible, but 
when their papers are to be filled and signed by a veteran they 
find too late that they were not eligible to membership. I know 
of some instances when blanks have not been filled and sent the 
registrars in years, simply because these charter members were 
not eligible. I lay particular stress on this and advise my suc- 
cessor to send out blanks as I have done this year. 

I wish to recommend to the chapters the use of the beautiful 
and appropriate United Daughters of the Confederacy ritual on 
pape 64 of minutes of San Francisco convention. This ritual is 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 15 

recommended for use at the opening session of division and chap- 
ter meetings. 

Mrs. Brooks, the kind matron at the Soldiers' Home in Raleigh, 
will tell you the condition of the home and just what has been sent 
there this year by the chapters and what is now needed. The 
veterans are dying out fast and in a few years, comparatively 
speaking, there will be none left to be cared for at the Soldiers' 
Home. So it behooves us to brighten their last days as much as 
possible "for they fought and wore the gray." 

It will be a proud day for the South when the beautiful mem- 
orial to Jefferson Davis, our great chieftain — for which we have 
worked so well in this division, under the leadership of Mrs. Alli- 
son—is unveiled next June. Right here, I want to thank Mrs. 
Allison for her fine work. 

Now we come to the cross of honor, which is bound around 
with ironclad rules and much red tape. Last year in my division 
report to the San Francisco convention of United Daughters of 
the Confederacy, I made a vigorous protest in the name of my 
division against such rules that would not allow the custodian to 
refund to the chapters crosses broken in coming, and to the vete- 
rans whose crosses simply dropped from their bars and lost. In- 
secure fastenings, poorly made badges. Missouri also and one or 
two other states entered the same protest. We wish to pay 
more for them. In a presentation of crosses this year I found 
two broken in opening them, one came from the bar on being pin- 
ned on and the cross was lost off before the old man left the court 
house. I wrote this to Mrs. Gabbett. I do not complain of her 
for conforming to the rules, but we do complain of the rules. I 
am glad to say that the veterans of the N. C. division will send a 
petition to the U. D. C. in convention assembled, that inasmuch as 
they value these little iron crosses above everything, they beg that 
they be more substantially made — more securely fastened to the 
bars. This signed by General Julian S. Carr and his adjutant, 
Mr. H. A. London, I am sure you will heartily approve of their 
appeal. It was in a great measure due to their appeals several 
years ago to the U. D. C. that the divisions were granted a fourth 
day, being August 23, for the bestowal of crosses. 

Now that there is no more money to be raised for the Jeffer- 
son Davis monument the chapters are erecting monuments in their 
county towns to the memory of their confederate heroes, and now 
we wish to bend our energies this year to the erection of the arch 
gateway to the Confederate Cemetery in Raleigh. Many of the 



16 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

chapters have already sent their quoto to the treasurer for this 
arch. It will be erected through the combined efforts of the 
North Carolina Daughters to the Confederate dead from every 
county of this state, who have died at the soldiers' home and rest 
in this cemetery. Every stone is to bear the same of the chap- 
ter paying for it, thus in one place will be a memorial to these 
dead and incidentally to the chapters, (not to the women,) who by 
their united efforts rendered this memorial possible. 

Now as to the child's chapters I have repeatedly been asked if 
they have representation in convention and if they can have 
charters. I answered no to both questions. But we are happy 
to have reports from all the children chapters and I repeat what I 
said last year that they should fill in applications, the same as do 
the adult chapters. It is to the children we look to perpetuate 
the memories of those hallowed days, and to teach their children's 
children the truth that in no age or country was there such a 
soldier as the man who wore the gray. 

I wish to thank the officers of my cabinet for their efficient 
help during the two years of my administration, and in retiring 
from office I will say that it has been a labor of love, and I shall 
always remember with pride and pleasure that I was your state 
president. 

Respectfully, 

Mrs. H. A. LONDON, 

President. 



The Recording- Secretary then read her report which 
was received. 

REPORT OF RECORDING SECRETARY. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

There are registered upon the Recording Secretary's book 73 
U. D. C. Chapters and 14 Children's Chapters. During the past 
year 11 new chapters have been added to the roll. Of these five 
were reported at the last convention as being in process of organi- 
zation and 5 have received their organization papers since. The 
last six are the Gastonia at Gastonia, Knott's Island at Wood- 
leigh, Averasboro Battle at Duke, Albemarle at Albemarle, John 
D. Currie, Clarkton Randolph at Ashboro. Blanks have been 
sent to 6 other places with a view to forming chapters, and I 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 17 

believe charters have been applied for. These are Sanford, 
White Oak, Maxton, Elizabethtown, High Point and Rockingham. 
I have sent out this year 1355 blanks to old and new chapters, 
written 497 letters and 182 postals. 

Thanking the Daughters all over the State for their kindness 
and consideration for me during my two years in office, I remain, 
Respectfully, 

FANNIE RANSOM WILLIAMS, 

Recording Secretary. 



The report of the Auditing Committee was read by 
Mrs. John Manning and a vote of thanks given Miss

Mrs. G. P. Alston, Corresponding Secretary, next 
gave her report which was also received. 

CORRESPONDING SECRETARY'S REPORT. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

In making my teport for the past year, I desire to put on le- 
cord my thanks to all with whom I have had any official relations, 
for uniform courtesy and a ready willingness to do all in their 
power to lighten my labors, and in any and every way to forward 
the aims and purposes of our association, thereby rendering my 
work more a pleasure than a labor. I desire also to express my 
great pleasure at the steady interest shown in the organization 
and its work. An interest that seems to increase rather than 
diminish as the years go by. 

I have written 167 postal cards and 20 letters. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. G. P. ALSTON, 
Corresponding Secretary. 

At the conclusion of this report a motion was made 
to adjourn, which was seconded and carried. 



FIRST DAY.— AFTERNOON SESSION. 



At the opening of the afternoon session the Histor- 
ian's report was called for and on being read was re- 
ceived without correction. 

REPORT OF THE HISTORIAN. 

Madam President and Daughters: 

I must begin my report with regrets, that, owing to six 
months of extreme illness, I have done but little work during the 
past year as your Historian. 

During the winter I wrote letters to all of the Chapters in- 
forming them that the Secretary of State had kindly promised us 
storage room in his office for our historical papers, and begging 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 27 

them to send all their papers direct to him, plainly marked as his- 
torical papers from whatever chapter it was, and in all instances 
prepaying: postage or express charges, and, when such shipment 
was made that a list of the letters be sent to the Historian for 
registration. 

I received no replies to these letters. I have sent to the 
Secretary of State's office thirteen papers, nine belonging to the 
Guilford chapter and four to the Gen. G. B. Anderson chapter, 
and I have been lately notified by the first Historian of the Frank 
Bird chapter, of Windsor that she has sent two papers. 

It is a very important matter that these papers should be 
preserved, and as there is no really safe place for them, we should 
take measures to urge upon the Legislature the necessity for a 
suitable building being provided for the preservation of the State's 
Archives and H'storical records and papers, and the establishment 
of a department of Archives and History, similar to those already 
in successful existence in the States of Alabama, Tennessee and 
Mississippi. 

At the General U. D. C. convention, held last October in San 
Francisco, a resolution was adopted for the appointment of a 
special committee to co-operate with the United Sons of Con- 
federate Veterans in the establishment of a department of His- 
tory and Archives in every one of the Southern States. 

I have just been notified of my appointment as the member of 
that committee for our State, and as it falls within my province 
as your Historian, I urge upon you now the necessity of united 
action in this matter, both as a Convention and as individual Chap- 
ters and Daughters, petition the Legislature as a body, and bring 
it to the attention of your members of the Legislature and secure 
their promise to vote for the creation of the department and the 
erection of suitable fire proof buildings wherein to store the 
shining record of our splendid past. I would advise the appoint- 
ment of a committee of three, either in Durham or Raleigh, for 
the purchase, or to have made to order two books of suitable size 
and uniform binding, and proper lettering, one for the letter book 
of your historian, and the other as a record book wherein she 
shall record the titles of the historical papers that shall be report- 
ed to her and sent to Raleigh for safe keeping. I have had a 
great deal of correspondence on this snbject but nothing has come 
of it. My associate in office, Mrs. W. O. Shannon, has written me 
of good work that she is doing, and I especially commend her plan 
for representation at the Jamestown celebration to your favorable 



28 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

consideration. And now in resigning my office and taking official 
leave of you, let me repeat the first note that I struck when I 
assumed the office of historian four years ago, and urge upon you 
the paramount importance of securing historical narratives and 
incidents from the men who fought, and fighting made the history 
that it should be our pride and glory to preserve. There is an 
irresistable might and veraciousness in the fact told by the actors, 
themselves, that a third person's nanative can never leave. 
There is a spirit, a reality and a verity in the introduction of 
minor incidents and by-play of the hero's story that no outsider can 
supply, and therefore I beg, nay I beseech you each one to lose no 
time in securing them while you can have them told by living lips. 
It will not be long that such privilege will be given you. Soon, ah! 
too soon will the seal of an unbreakable silence close the lips from 
which the wild music of the Rebel Yell, so often heralded victory, 
and what has not been recorded shall be untold until the last 
reveille shall sound. 

Respectfully submitted, 

REBECCA CAMERON, 
Historian N. C. Div. U. D. C. 
Hillsborough, North Carolina, 
Sept. 27th, 1906. 



Mrs. Gilbert White, a member of the Ladies Auxili- 
ary Lee Camp, Richmond Va. was recognised as being 
present and invited to a seat on the rostrum, and was 
introduced to the Convention. 

The report on Amendments and By-laws was post- 
poned until a later hour as was also that of Assistant 
Historian. The reports of the Standing Committees 
were then taken up. The Transportation Committee 
through Mrs. Eugene Little stated that satisfactory 
arrangements had been made with the various railroads 
to give rates to the delegates. Mrs. W. 0. Shannon 
reported perfect harmony in the ranks of the Arbitra- 
tion Committee, and congratulated the Convention on 
the fact that thus far their position had been a 
sinecure, as there had been nothing to arbitrate. The 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 29 

Purchasing Committee of the Soldiers Home reported 
through Mrs. Brooks and was received with many 
thanks for her tender care of the feeble veterans. 
Mrs. Brooks then by request gave a short talk of the 
old soldiers within the home.

HISTORICAL AND TEXT BOOK REPORT 



Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

It is with pleasure that I present this report to you, because 
I think it evidences a realization on the part of the historical com- 
mittee, of the importance of the work in which they are engaged. 
When they hear from the lips of scarred veterans tales of the 
great conflict, and from the women that upheld their hands, 



32 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

memories of endurance and sacrifice, —then crytalize these stories 
into chronicles, —they are writing history that will be preserved in 
the Archives of the State, and men and women of other genera- 
tions will come to these records for a true representation of that 
period of which they tell. 

A short time ago I sent a letter to each chapter historian of 
the North Carolina Division, asking for a report of her year's 
work and that all historical papers be sent to the Secretary of 
State for preservation and the titles of these papers to the State 
Historian U. D. C, as she desired. To these letters I have re- 
ceived a number of most satisfactory replies. A letter from the 
Henry Wyatt Chapter, at Selma, tells of its study of North Caro- 
lina events of interest, her first battle, her generals, and other 
brave heroes that she has sent to the front. A very interesting 
feature of the meetings of this chapter is the presence of veterans 
who come to relate their war experiences. 

The historian of the William Dorsey Pender Chapter, Tarboro, 
writes that she is sending papers on Gen. William Gaston Lewis, 
Col. H. A. Dowd, Henry L. Wyatt, Hon. R. R. Bridges and Col. 
J. L. Bridgers. Also one containing an incident of the war. I 
have a promise from the Margaret Davis Chapter, Hendersonville, 
of some interesting documents sometime during the early winter. 
The Gastonia Chapter has adopted an excellent method of sending 
blanks with leading questions to all of the Veterans in the county, 
and thus far forty of them have responded. When the historian 
gets their papers into shape she will send them to the Secretary of 
State. She also promises some other sketches. 

The Battle of Bentonville Chapter, Mooresville, requires from 
each of its members a paper presenting a reminiscense of the 
veteran under whom she joins. The historian of this chapter has 
examined the historical text books of the neighboring schools and 
reports them free from objection. The historian of Faison-Hicks 
Chapter says she has persuaded seven veterans to write of their 
personal war experiences. Those papers she has sent to Raleigh 
to be preserved. The Robeson Chapter is only a few months old 
and has thus far bent all of its energies toward raising money for 
a monument. It promises good work along historical lines during 
the coming year. 

From the Junius Daniel Chapter, Weldon, I have received an 
account of a charming function at the house of its president on the 
anniversary of Lee's birthday. Papers were read and addresses 
made on the lives of Generals Lee and Ransom and Junius Daniel 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 33 

and President Davis, and patriotic songs were sung. I have 
asked that some of these papers be sent to Raleigh for preserva- 
tion. The historian will also stnd some of her personal ex- 
periences. 

I have received a most interesting account of the burning of a 
sword factory and a yankee raid from the W. A. Allen Chapter, at 
Kenansville. This I have forwarded to the Secretary of State. 
Mrs. Hatcher of Alfred Moore Waddell Chapter, Kinston, has sent 
me a beautiful paper, her recollection of the Battle of Bentonville. 
She has much more valuable material which she promises to collect 
and send to the State Archive* 

The Frank Bird Chapter historian has sent from Windsor a 
most excellent report. Since its beginning it has never failed to 
hold its monthly maetinfj with a good attendance, though scatter- 
ed over twenty miles of territory. When this chapter was organ- 
ized its historian wrote a number of questions for veterans to 
answer. A copy of these questions was sriven to each member of 
the chapter with the request that she would give it to some old 
soldier to fill out. I think it well to know of the successful 
methods of the various chapters. 

The Daughters of the Confederacy of this division were much 
interested in the character of men who should be appointed for the 
sub-commission to examine the text books for the public schools. 
As chairman of the text book committee, the propriety of writing 
to the Governor about this matter was suggested to me by our 
president. I sent him this letter: 

•'The United Daughters of the Confederacy in this State have 
been much interested in the character of the historical books 
taught in our schools, they have made great efforts, and with a 
measure of success, to accomplish the withdrawal of all books 
purporting to be school histories which fail to do justice to the 
motives which actuated the people of the South in their attempt to 
establish the Confederacy. They have found that ceaseless 
vigilance is necessary to keep pure the sources from which the 
children draw their ideas of the causes of the war between the 
States. They feel that the subject of selection of school books 
for use in their State is in as good hands as the law could place it, 
yet it is deemed no more than right to ask your Excellency, in 
the appointment of a sub-commission to examine text books, to 
select only those who are known of all men to be true to the 
traditions of the fathers." 



34 M i nutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

In his reply to this letter our good Governor said: "I will 
try and see to it that no one is put upon the Sub-Commission who 
is not loyal and true to the traditions of the fathers." 

Shortly after this I received two historical text books from the 
agent of one of the publishing houses asking me to recommend 
them to the Governor for use in our schools. This I did not do. 
I had no opportunity of comparing them with other histories 
under consideration, besides we had the Governor's word that none 
but true men should be appointed, so it seemed to me that a rec- 
ommendation of these books would be a needless interference. 

There has been a suggestion in one of the newspapers that I 
would like to endorse. It is that a picture of General Lee be 
hung on the walls of every school room in the State. And also 
I would like to make a motion before this invention that General 
Lee's farewell address be read in the schools on every anniversary 
of his birthday. It is a piece of beautiful English through, which 
the heart of a great man speaks. 

In conclusion let me say: I believe that during the next year 
many valuable papers of confederate days will be written and I 
trust that not only the historians but each one of the Daughters 
of the Confederacy will take a deep interest in the collection and 
preservation of such records, knowing that the result of our com- 
bined, zealous effort will be a great factor in showing to the world 
what manner of men and women made the North Carolina of the 
Sixties. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. J. C. MacRAE, 
Chairman of the Historical and Text Book Committee. 



In the absence of the most efficient Director of the 
Jefferson Davis monument committee, her report was 
read by Mrs. Montgomery. 

JEFFERSON DAVIS MONUMENT FUND. 



Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

Report of the Director of the Jefferson Davis Monument 
Association U. D. C. for North Carolina, 1906: There is little 
more to report. The work is moving along as rapidly as possible. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 35 

The stone work we hope, will be finished by Mai*ch, and it is ex- 
pected that the monument will be completed by the first of May, 
and when the veil drops not a penny will be owing on it. 

The report of the Inscription Committee has been submitted to 
the officers of the Jefferson Davis Monument Association and to 
the State Presidents. I, as Director for North Carolinia can say, 
that in my opinion, it is without fault, and Mrs. London has aslo 
endorsed the work of this faithful committee. 

Since my last report I have receipted for, and forwarded 
promptly to Mrs. Taylor, Treasurer J. D. M. Association, the 
following contributions: 
1905. 

Dec. 10. Henry Wyatt Chapter, Selma, 1.25 

1906. 

Apr. 5. Scotland Neck Chapter 1.50 

Total

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. JOHN P. ALLISON, 

Director for North Carolina. 



The Committee on Monument to Gov. Vance, in 
Charlotte, was next read and received. 

The reading of the Chapter reports was then begun 
and continued until the twilight hour warned the 
assembly it was time to adjourn. A motion was made 
to make the election of officers the special business on 
the opening of the Convention Thursday morning, 
which was seconded and carried, after which the Con- 
vention adjourned to meet at 10 o'clock next morning. 



SECOND DAY.— morning session. 

After the reciting of the Lord's prayer by the dele- 
gates, nominations for State President were called for 
and Mrs. Willard presented the name of Mrs. W. S. 
Parker of Henderson. Mrs. Parker was unanimouslv 



36 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

elected, a most unusual occurrence, and on motion of 
Mrs. I. W. Faison, the Recording Secretary cast the 
vote of the Convention for Mrs. Parker and she was at 
once escorted to the rostrum. Nominations then fol- 
lowed for all the different officers in order. The Re- 
cording Secretary was renominated unanimously to 
succeed herself. The result of the election was as 
follows: 

Mrs. W. S. Parker, Henderson President

Miss Kate McKimmon, Raleigh Chaplain 

Mrs. E. E. Moffitt, of Raleigh, was chosen Honorary 
President to fill the place made vacant by the death of 
Mrs. Gen. D. H. Hill. A motion was also made and 
carried to nominate no person for an office at a Conven- 
tion unless said party was present at the time. The 
matter will be brought before the Amendment Com- 
mittee next year in order to make it a past of our Con- 
stitution. 

Mrs. M. H. Jones next extended an invitation to the 
delegates to attend the reception given by the Elks 
that night, and also reminded the ladies of the "At 
Home" tendered them at 4 o'clock by Mrs. W. A. 
Ervin. Both invitations were accepted with thanks. 
Mrs. Jones then issued another invitation from Mr. W. 
D. Carmichael that the ladies visit the High School at 
some hour either Thursday or Friday. This invitation 
was also accepted with thanks and the hour fixed for 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 37 

one o'clock Friday. A vote of thanks was given to Mr. 
Josephus Daniels for a large number of News & Ob- 
servers, which he sent to the Convention for the use of 
the delegates. This closed the business of the day and 
the meeting adjourned for dinner. 



AFTERNOON SESSION. 



The afternoon session opened at 3:30 o'clock and the 
committee reports that had been postponed the day be- 
fore were taken up, read and approved in the following 
order: 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON N. C. ROOM. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

It gives me great pleasure to report the following contribu- 
tions to the N. C. Room during the past year: 

1. Several Confederate ten dollar bills given by an old 
Veteran. 

2. Twenty dollars U. S. money sent by . 

3. Large photo combining the pictures of Gen. R. E. Lee, 
Col. T. H. Cheek, M. Dorsey and Capt. W. R. Green, given by 
Capt. W. R. Green. 

4. Photo of Confederate Monument in Windsor, Bertie county, 
erected in 1898. 

5. Photo of Capt. W. H. S. Burgwyn, taken at 16 years of 
age, and a cap worn by him during the Maryland Campaign in 18G2 
as First Lieutenant Company H, 35 Regiment N. C. Troops, 
Ransom's Brigade, given by Mrs. W. H. S. Burgwyn. 

7. A most unique Confederate envelope, underneath the 
inscription "Confederate States of America," we find the follow- 
ing verse: 

"On, on to the rescue, the Vandals are coming 
Go meet them with bayonet, sabre and spear, 
Drive them back to the desolate land they are leaving 
Go trusting in God you have nothing to fear." 



38 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

8. Needle case and pincushion given Gen. Robert Ransom by 
a lady in the valley of Virginia, and carried by him through the 
four years of war. 

9. A beautiful dressing case made by his wife and used by 
Gen. Robert Ransom during the entire war. 

9. A Bible given as a wedding present to Gen. Robert Ransom 
and was always carried by him. Many of his favorite texts are 
marked. 

10. Confederate buttons given by a lady whose husband fell 
around Petersburg, Capt. Chenault, Company 1, 49 Regiment. 
They were worn by a Catawba soldier, Capt. C, and also a sailor, 
name unknown. 

11. North Carolina Military Institute button. 

12. Confederate money given by a little boy of Newton. 

13. A true history of Company I, 49 Regiment North Caro- 
lina troops in the great Civil War, by W. A. Day, a member of 
Company I, 49 Regiment. 

14. Several interesting extracts from North Carolina and 
Virginia, papers relative to the first North Carolina Calvary which 
was organized by Gen. Robert Ransom and to which he gave 
$2000 to aid in the equipment. Gen. Robert Ransom did not 
believe in publishing what he did, but it is the duty of us Daugh- 
ters to hunt up these facts, and it is my earnest wish that we com- 
memorate his splendid service to his country by placing a portrait 
of him in our North Carolina Room. 

15. It gives me great pleasure to state that we bought the 
Ku Klux Banner and it is said to be the most unique relic in the 
Museum. 

16. Accompanying this banner I sent a copy of Mrs. T. J. 
Jarvin's: "Causes that led up to the Ku Klux Klan;" and "His- 
tory of the Ku Klux Klan in North Carolina."

United Daughters of the Confederacy 43 
REPORT OF CHILDREN'S CHAPTERS. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

Nothing could be more gratifying to your Committee on 
Children Chapters than the favorable reports from all sources. 

The formation of new Chapters is particularly encouraging. 

I had hoped to meet with the Daughters at the Convention in 
Durham, and to impress on the Chapters the importance of each 
one forming an auxiliary Children's Chapter. 

It is only through these children that we can hope to perpet- 
uate our much loved organization. Our duty to the dead and to 
the living lies in teaching this generation to reverence the memory 
of those who laid down their lives for us, and for them. And to 
impress on their minds the great truths for which they fought, 
and the justice of our cause. Above all else, they should be 
taught never to allow "The War Between the States ' to be called 
a "Rebellion," or the noble, brave men, who fought on the side of 
justice and right, to be designated as "Rebels." 

An accidental lameness prevented my carrying out my design, 
and deprived me of the pleasure and profit I had anticipated. 

I hope another year to accomplish something more. 
Respectfully submitted, 

LAVINIA COLE ROBERTS, 

Chairman Children's Chapters.

ments presented: 

ARTICLE V. 

Each Chapter shall be entitled in all meetings of the State 
Division, to one representative for every twenty-five members or

Chapter to two votes. But representation shall be based upon 
the per capita tax paid. 

This amendment was passed unanimously without 
any discussion. The next read was one to By-law No. 
6. The By-law reads as follows: 

An Auditing Committee, composed of three members, shall be 
appointed by the President, whose duty it shall be to audit the 
books of the Treasurer two weeks prior to the Annual Convention 
and make report at same. 

Amended by adding: 

And nothing more shall be added on Treasurer's books for that 
year unless for expenses of the Convention, which may be under 
separate heading. 

This amendment called forth much discussion and 
several alterations and new wording of same idea. 
Mrs. Overman suggested that the Auditing Committee 
meet the first or second day of the Convention and 
audit Treasurer's book, as was done at the General Con- 
vention. It seemed likely this motion might have 
passed, when one was carried over it, that the whole 
matter be tabled, thus closing the discussion and leav- 
ing the matter as it has always stood. 

The last amendment was to insert the following as 
By-law No. 8, making the present No. 8, No. 9: 

The Committee on Credentials, before alloting Chapter votes, 
shall confer with the Treasurer and the Registrar in order to 
make the number of votes consistent with the reports of those 
officers according to the per capita tax paid in each Chapter; and 
it shall be the duty of each Chapter President to send to the State 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 47 

Registrar, just before the meeting of the Convention, a revised 
list of members of her Chapter indicating losses by death or re- 
moval. 

This was carried without discussion. 

The Memorial Arch Committee was represented by- 
its chairman, Mrs. E. E. Moffitt, who had exhibited on 
the rostrum a plan of the intended Arch. Mrs. Moffitt 
requested that all Chapters, who had pledged stones, 
withdraw that pledge and give $20 instead; as architects 
said it would not make the Arch durable if stones from 
different quarries were used in its construction. This 
was agreed to in instances, and other Chapters which 
had not already done so, pledged money for the work. 



REPORT ON MEMORIAL ARCH. 



Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

The proposition made to the North Carolina Division of the U. 
D. C. at the meeting in Asheville, N. C, in October 1904, to erect 
a Memorial gateway to the Confederate Cemetery in Raleigh, met 
with encouraging approval and the matter was left for consideration 
until the next annual meeting. In 1905 at Morganton the subject 
was fully discussed by the convention, and it was decided that each 
Chapter in the State contribute twenty dollars in money or donate 
a stone suitably inscribed. During the year the amount of $20.00 
was subscribed and paid into the hands of the State D. C. 
Treasurer, who had been appointed to hold this fund separate and 
apart from the general fund. At this meeting in Durham in 1906, 
the committee reported the progress of the undertaking and asked 
that the stipulation allowing each Chapter to donate a stone be 
rescinded, for the reason that a Memorial that is made to endure, 
must be constructed of the stone that will best stand climatic 
conditions and be uniform in color and texture. It was then re- 
solved that the Chapters donate twenty dollars each, and it will be 
the ambition of the committee to select the best stone, the best 
plan, fitting an object so sacred, that of erecting a Memorial 
gateway to the cemetery in which lie nearly one thousand gallant 
men, representing every Southern State. 

Mrs. E. E. MOFFITT, 

Chairman. 



48 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

Mrs. Frank Edward Lloyd, youngest member of the 
Robert. F. Hoke Chapter, Salisbury, was presented to 
the Convention and given a seat on the rostrum. Mrs. 
Lloyd is the niece of Mrs. Stonewall Jackson, being the 
daughter of her brother, the late Major Joseph Graham 
Morrison, of Mariposa, Lincoln county, a member of 
Stonewall Jackson's staff and one who was at the bed- 
side of that illustrious hero, when he died. Mrs. Lloyd 
wore the time stained white ribbon badge, which had 
been worn by her father while serving on General 
Jackson's staff, and which had printed on it "Jackson 
Staff." 

Miss James presented the report of the George 
Davis Monument and urged that the work of erecting 
this tribute to the "Attorney General of the Confede- 
rate States, President Davis' closest friend and most 
able advisor and assistant during those eventful years," 
be pushed forward to completion 



REPORT OF GEO. DAVIS MONUMENT. 



Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy. 

I regret very much having no increase of the fund for the 
George Davis Monument since last year's report, except the in- 
terest on the amount reported at that time. It is plainly evident 
that if we obtain a sufficient amount to add to what has already 
been raised by Cape Fear Chapter, of Wilmington, for that pur- 
pose, we will be compelled to make another appeal to cur own 
State, as so few of the other States have shown any willingness 
to contribute to this noble work. A^ Artorney General of the 
Southern Confederacy, it should be considered not only a privilege, 
but the duty of the Chapters of every State Division to assist in 
erecting a monument to the memory of the Confederate George 
Davis. 

As Mrs. William Parsley, Chairman of the Committee from 
Cape Fear Chaptor, had already appealed to the other Chapters of 
this State, there was nothing for the State Committee to do, but 
to seek assistance from the other States with what poor result 
was stated in last year's report. As Mrs. Parsley has a memo- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 49 

randum of many of the Chapters in North Carolina who have 
signified a willingness to contribute something in the future, I 
propose making in behalf of the State Committee, a second appeal, 
hoping to add something to the fund through that means, trusting 
their State pride will influence them to do all they can to forward 
this work of duty, appreciation, and loving remembrance of faith- 
ful servitude to State and country. I therefore wish to make a 
personal appeal to this Convention to give all possible help to this 
work, before other appeals are answered, and there has already 
been much help given, even to other States, since this work was 
started in our own. While I commend all assistance given to the 
patriotic movements for which we are constantly receiving 
appeals, the foundation of ours is laid in the fund already raised, 
and we should see that our own State structure is completed be- 
fore our generation passes away, and it crumble into dim forget- 
fulness in the coming generation, who know so little, not only of 
the grand history of the Southern Confederacy, but of their own 
mother State. 

A true son of North Carolina, eminent at the bar— honored as 
a citizen— loved as a Christian — using every effort, when the tocsin 
of war had nearly reached our ears, to save the shedding of pure 
and precious Southern blood, by any honorable compromise, that 
could be made, for none but an honorable one would he have 
accepted, and when that failed, and the Peace Commissioners, of 
which he was one, returned, unsuccessful from Washington, en- 
tered heart and soul in the interest of the Southern Confederacy 
and served his country in the position with which he was honored, 
and so well fitted by nature and talent. It was his pen that 
wrote, to the tune of the immortal Dixie, the inspiring song: 
"Carolina's Sons are Ready," sung with enthusiastic love of his 
mother State by many an ardent son, as he went forth to battle 
for the right, leaving home and all that was dear to him, to which, 
alas! many returned with closed eyes, paled face, and folded 
hands, powerless to longer aid in his country's defence, to be 
placed under his native sod. North Carolina should be only too 
proud to have erected upon her soil— his native soil— an enduring 
monument to such a son as Mr. Davis. Shall we not make every 
effort to succeed in this undertaking? 

Wilmington proudly claims his birthplace, and the Cape Fear 
Chapter is making an annual contribution from her treasury for 
this purpose, but should not all North Carolinians be only too 
willing to do honor to this noble son as they have to others? Shall 



50 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

we have to appeal again and again to North Carolina, who has 
been so earnest in honoring the memory of her immortal Vance, 
and others, who should always live in our hearts and memories, to 
also erect a monument to one so conspicuous in the history of the 
Southern Confederacy, when the future sons of North Carolina 
can read the record of a well spent life of one of her noble sons? 
To us, there is no need of "storied urn or animated bust," to re- 
call the deeds of our noble dead, for they are too strongly inscrib- 
ed upon the tablets of our hearts, but to coming generations we 
should leave their deeds inscribed where they can be seen. Let 
us show that we, the Daughters of North Carolina, will devote our- 
selves, if unassisted, even though his work when needed, was 
given to his country — the whole Southern Confederacy, as well as 
his native State. The privilege and right was theirs as well as 
ours, and the opportunity has been offered to every State Division 
of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, and almost entirely 
ignored, with only a few stray dollars, except from the noble State 
of Georgia, who gave generously, which I stated in my report of 
last year, as well as her beautiful allusion to her State President 
as a daughter of what we feel is our grand old State. 

Trusting my appeal may reach your hearts as the cause 
touches mine, I hope our work will daily grow, and if necessary to 
do it within ourselves, we can proudly point to it as truly the 
almost entire work of his own loved and native State. 

May God bless our efforts, whether aided or unaided, is the 
earnest prayer of your humble Chairman, 

HETTIE L. JAMES. 



Mrs. Shannon moved that the Legislature be re- 
quested to place a statue of Vance in Washington; Mrs. 
F. M. Williams asked that one of Nathanel Macon be 
also included in this motion. Mrs. Shannon accepted 
Mrs. William's request and the motion was then put to 
the house and carried. 

An appeal was then read, which will be presented 
at the Gulfport Convention from the United Confede- 
rate Veterans of North Carolina asking that Crosses of 
Honor be better made and also that those, which have 
been lost by Veterans through no fault of theirs, be re- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 51 

placed. A letter was then read from Mrs. Conelia 
Branch Stone, Chairman General Cross of Honor Com- 
mittee, relative to the bestowal of Crosres by Chapters 
on their county Veterans regardless of where they live. 
The following is an extract from said letter: 



Blue Ridge Springs, Va., 
Sept. 24. 1906. 

My Dear Mrs. Williams: 

Since August 20, your letter 
has awaited reply, as it was forwarded from Galveston, Texas, to 
this place, and I have intended from day to day, through a busy 
summer, to write to you, on the subject so near to your heart. 

There is no reason, or rule against the giving of a Cross, by 
the "home" Chapter, to such Veterans as you mention, those who 
have wandered far from native State, to which the service was 
given in the Confederate cause, and if you know of any such, who 
desire Crosses, send blank certificate, asking that it be filled out, 
as far as possible by the applicant, and it seems reasonable to sup- 
pose that endorsement of claims of eligibility, could be more easily 
attained in his old home, than in any other place, and such recom- 
mendation you could secure for him, as he, doubtless, would not 
have kept in touch with the Voterans in his own State, who could 
verify his claim, and I can easily understand that it would give 
the Cross an added value, to receive it from the hands of the 
Daughters in his old home. While Rule VII, Section 1, permits 
Veterans to apply to nearest local Chapter, it does not prohibit the 
presentation by other Chapters, if so desired. To make this 
clearer, however, you can send to the Committee on Cross of 
Honor an amendment to that effect, making the Rule to read thus: 
"Where counties have no local organization, U. D. C, Veterans 
may receive Crosses through the President of the nearest local 
Chapter, or from Chapters in the counties from whice they entered 
the Confederate service." 

I feel very earnestly that some remedy should be had for those 
who have lost their Crosses through faulty and defective manu- 
facture of the Crosses. And this has been a subject that I have 
urged upon Mrs. Gabbett, continually, that the Crosses must be 
more carefully made, and at one of the Conventions she stated, 
that for a small additional amount for the cost of the Cross, these 



52 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

could be made stronger, and this additional (one cent each, I 
think) amount was voted. If you desire to present the Crosses, 
(that is, hand them to veterans) at "re-unions," it may be pos- 
sible to do it in this way: Order your Crosses upon the nearest 
date (before re-union) allowed for bestowal and if announced on 
that day, for bestowal, that these persons have been granted 
Crosses, and the parties are not present, these unclaimed Crosses 
can be held in the custody of the Chapter President, (having been 
announced as bestowed) and pinned on at re-union, as the first 
opportunity, to actually give them. 

Mrs. Rosenbury has had Crosses left over in her care for two 
or ihree months, for parties whose names had been called, as 
having received Crosses, but had not claimed them. For 
instance, you have a day in your State, between June 3, and 
January 19, say this is in October, your re-union is a week or two 
weeks, or even a month later, get the Crosses for the day selected 
for bestowal, call a meeting on that day, and read the entire list 
to whom Crosses are awarded. Those who are present will re- 
ceive their Cross, and those that you can only meet at the re- 
union, can have theirs pinned on at the re-union, although "be- 
stowed" on the day set apart for that purpose, but not claimed. 
There must be some regular days for these bestowals, else the 
Custodian could not provide for furnishing the crosses, unless we 
had means enough to keep a corps of assistants for her, all of the 
time, knowing the days, in each Division, she can arrange to get 
in extra help for a day or two, to meet a rush of orders, thus 
saving the expense of keeping a clerk all of the time, whether 
needed or not. 

There are many vexing problems connected with the manage- 
ment of this matter, and the necessity for the protection and 
guarding of the Cross, else the loss of its value, as an "honor" 
brings about some of these. But the Committee has tried to do 
the best possible, and I am sure, are willing to do all that is con- 
sistent with an observance of the rules, to meet the demands of 
the Chapters. 

Much love for you and a greeting for your Chapter, and be- 
lieve me cordially your friend. 

CORNELIA BRANCH STONE.

(Note: This report should have followed that of 
Recording Secretary; but through a mistake was over- 
looked until now. ) 



The Committee on Matt Ransom Portrait reported 
as follows: 
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON MATT RANSOM PORTRAIT. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy. 

I wish to maka the following statement as Chairman of the 
General Ransom Rortrait Committee: 



56 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

After paying for the portrait, the frame and oxpress charges, 
I had left thirty dollars and forty cents. After consulting quite 
a number of the Daughters, it was decided that the amount re- 
maining should be used for the benefit of the North Carolina Room 
in the Confederate Museum, Richmond, and I placed that amount 
in the hands of Mrs. J. Allison Hodges, of Richmond, who turned 
it over to Mrs Gordon, regent of the North Carolina Room. 

I have not received an itemized statement from Mrs. Gordon, 
regent of the North Carolina room, which I had hoped to get be- 
fore the Convention, but I will try to have it in time for the 
Minutes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

' Mrs. J. G. BROADNAX. 
Oct. 9th, 1906. 



It was agreed at this Convention that hereafter the 
Daughters should use the term "War Between the 
States" in alluding to the war between the North and 
South, as this was the term most used by President 
Davis in his writings. 

An invitation to take a trolly ride over the city as 
the guest of Mr. R. H. Wright, President of the Dur- 
ham Traction Company, at 3:00 P. M., and to a tea at 
Mrs. W. M. Yearby's at five o'clock were then extended 
and accepted with many thanks, after which the Con- 
vention adjourned to meet again at 8 o'clock. 



THIRD DAY.— night session. 



Owing to the trolly ride at the usual hour of meet- 
ing there was no afternoon session of the Convention. 
Immediately after the opening of the night session a 
number of letters were read relative to the erection of 
a building by the United Daughters of tha Confederacy 
at the Jamestown Exposition. The proposition to 
assess each one of the 45,000 members of the organi- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 57 

zation fifty cents for this purpose was strenuously 
opposed by the North Carolina Division. It was decid- 
ed to empower Mrs. Henry A. London and Mrs. W. H. 
Overman, together with such ladies present at Gulfport 
as Mrs. London might request to aid them, to ascertain 
the wishes of the Convention at Gulfport and act as 
North Carolina's agent in the matter, and report to the 
new State President, Mrs. Parker, the result of their 
decision. 

Mrs. I. W. Faison in behalf of the King's Daughters 
read a request that the North Carolina Division U. D. 
C, co operate with them in petitioning the next legisla- 
ture to establish a reformatory for the boy criminals of 
the State. This matter met with the most hearty en- 
dorsement of the Convention. 

It was then decided that a committee be appointed 
to secure an amendment to the Constitution whereby 
the leaders of Children's Chapters be each entitled to 
one vote at State Conventions. Along this line an 
urgent plea was made for the forming of Children's 
Chapters by all Daughters Chapters, so the youth of 
the country, and especially the descendants of the 
private soldier, be taught more regarding the deeds of 
valor performed by the brave heroes who wore the 
gray. 

It was moved and seconded that hereafter in the 
formation of new Chapters, the members application 
blanks be properly filled out before any one's name be 
signed to the charter application, as it sometimes occurs 
that a person signs the charter application and after- 
wards finds she cannot fill out the membership blank, 
thus causing much confusion. 

Mrs. E. E. Moffitt then made the following motion 
which was seconded and carried: "In view of the 
need of a safe depository for the valuable Library and 



58 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convent ion 

Hall of History at the State Capitol, resolved that the 
North Carolina Daughters of the Confederacy endorse 
the Resolution of the State Historical Society to petition 
the next Legislature to erect a building suitable for the 
presei vation of the valuable records and documents of 
the State." 

It was also moved and seconded that no member of 
the United Daughters of the Confederacy could belong 
to two Chapters, but must be properly withdrawn from 
one before joining another. The next thing in order 
was to receive the invitations for the Convention of 
1907, and to decide upon the place. Both Greensboro 
and Rocky Mount extended most cordial invitations for 
the next Convention to be held w r ith them. Goldsboro 
stated that had she not thought, that by an unwritten 
law, the next Convention went West, she would have 
pressed her claim, but had decided to invite them in 
1908 instead. When Rocky Mount learned that the 
West rather claimed the next Convention, she most 
graciously withdrew her invitation in favor of Greens- 
boro, which then received the unanimous vote of the 
Convention as the place of meeting for 1907. 

The Resolutions of thanks were then read by the 
chairman of that committee, Mrs. T. L. Craig, and were 
as follows: 

Resolved I. That the North Carolina Division of the United 
Daughters of the Confederacy extends to Durham its sincerest 
thanks for its lavish hospitality extended the Convention now 
closing. 

Res. II. That we appreciate and have greatly enjoyed the 
many courtesies of the Julian S. Carr Chapter. 

Res. III. We thank Messrs Gilbert Ward Bryant and W. H. 
Overton for the uses of their most beautiful and comfortable 
Auditorium in the Conservatory of Music. And to the young 
lady ushers, who have so graciously served us. 

Res. IV. To Mrs. M. H. Jones, President, who welcomed all 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 59 

delegates to her home on the first evening of the Convention, thus 
enabling all to come in touch with each other. 

Res. V. That we express our warmest thanks to that devoted 
Confederate, foremost in everything that works for the interest 
and growth of our fair Southland, Gen. J. S. Carr and to his wife, 
for the brilliant reception given the Daughters at the Hotel 
Carrolina. 

Res. VI. That votes of thanks be tendered Mrs. W. A. 
Ervin for her gracious hospitality in her beautiful Tea. To the 
Elks for the reception in their hall. To Mrs. W. M. Yearby for 
her lovely Tea, which the ladies all thoroughly enjoyed after a 
delightful car ride over the city, kindly tendered them by the 
President of the Streat Car Co., Mr. R. H, Wright. And to 
Prof. Carmichael who kindly showed us over the finely equipped 
Graded Schools, where it was our pleasure to meet -Master Lam 
Krauser, who made all the beautiful lettering used in the Conven- 
tion. Thanks to the business houses and residences for decorat- 
ing homes. 

Res. VII. We thank the Durham papers and the Raleigh 
News and Observer for their accurate and interesting reports of 
our proceedings. 

Res. VIII. Lastly allow us to say that we have thoroughly 
enjoyed every moment spent in this beautiful and prosperous city, 
where its renowned hospitality has been proven by each individual 
hostess. And to our out-going President and other State officers, 
we want to tender our warmest appreciation and heart felt thanks 
for the untiring efforts in their grand and successful work. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. THOS. L. CRAIG, 
Mrs. HERBERT JACKSON, 
Miss DIXIE W. LEACH. 

At the conclusion of those the Convention adjourned 
to meet in Greensboro October 9th., 1907.

SOCIAL FUNCTIONS. 



When we come to give an account of the delightful 
social entertainments prepared for the enjoyment of 
the Convention members, our pen falters as we realize 
how feeble can be our efforts to picture for others, 
what we, ourselves, enjoyed. Beautiful indeed and 
most lavish were the decorations of every place of 
meeting, beautiful flowers and ever-greens were on 
every side, while from ceiling hung the dear old red, 
white and red of the Confederacy. Bright, happy 
girlish faces, in costumes which carried out the colors 
of decorations, stood on every side to aid in serving the 
many guests, while the hosts and hostesses only vied 
with each other in the cordiality of their welcomes. 

On the night before the opening of the Convention, 
Mrs. M. H. Jones, President of the Julian S. Carr 
Chapter, tendered an informal reception to the many 
visitors. Owing to train irregularities and missed con- 
nections many of the delegates failed to be present, 
but those attending were loud in their praises of the 
genial hostess and her chapter of delightful 
"Daughters." 

Wednesday night Gen. Julian S. Carr most charm- 
ingly entertained the delegates at a reception at the 
Carrolina. Everything was carried out with a view of 
reminding the guests of the cause they loved so well. 
Even the ice cream, carried us back to the days when 
our noble host marched to the sound of shot and shell, 
and it was with varied thoughts that we partook of the 
moulded forts, cannons and cannon balls. The only 



United Daitch'trrs of the Confederacy 61 

incident to mar this delightful evening, was the absence 
of Mrs. Carr, whose illness prevented her from being 
present, an occurrence which was greatly deplored by 
all present. The souvenirs of the occasion were pins 
with Gen. Carr's picture attached to red and white 
ribbons. 

Thursday afternoon Mrs. W. A. Ervin opened her 
beautiful home to the delegates and her friends. Here 
again words fail, when we undertake to describe this 
occasion, and we can only reiterate that the pleasure 
enjoyed was very great and that every one was loth to 
say good bye to their lovely hostess. 

Thursday night the Elks threw open the rooms of 
their lodge and most cordially received the Convention 
members at their reception. Here again everything 
reminded one of the days of 61-65 with the addition of 
the Elk's heads. Each guest, after a charming evening 
bore to her home, as a souvenir, a napkin with the 
Elk's head in one corner and the face of a clock in 
another. 

Friday afternoon a trolly ride over the different 
lines of the city was greatly enjoyed. The cars were 
prettily decorated and merry Southern songs made the 
welkin ling as the Daughters passed along the streets 
of Durham. The ride terminated at the stately home 
of Mrs. W. M. Yearby where the delegates had been 
invited to spend the last rfternoon of their stay in 
Durham. The lovely hostess had a real Southern wel- 
come for each and all of her guests and the hours flew 
by only too quickly. On leaving each lady had given 
her as a souvenir a dainty box of Huylers' candy. 
Thus ended the delightful social functions of the 
Durham Convention.

in the Opera House and at the Confederate Monument, dinner 
was served to the Veterans of Beaufort and adjoining counties to 
the number of 325. 

Our Secretary was instructed to write to the Soldiers Home 
offering aid. The reply was that Pamlico Chapter's room needed 
nothing. 

In regard to the Memorial Arch, I wish to say, our Chapter 
was one of the first to collect its assessment in November, it was 
not forwarded however until January, too late to be credited to 
Pamlico Chapter in the Minutes of the last Convention.

FINANCIAL REPORT: 

Receipts $1159.82 Disbursements $22.73 

Remarks— The efforts of the Chapter are still directed towards 
increasing the monument fund. So many obstacles were placed 
in the way of holding our usual entertainments that I suggested 
to the Chapter to use a part of the fund in land speculation. 
Hon. John S. Henderson received from the Chapter $650.00, with 
which he purchased nine lots in the West Ward of Salisbury. 
He made the investment entirely at his own risk, guaranteeing the 
Chapter not only against loss but promising them all the profits 
which he guaranteed should not be less than a six per cent invest- 
ment. Mr. Henderson personally attended to the whole matter 
which required a considerable portion of his time. The invest- 
ment netted the Chapter $750.00 or about 115?4 per cent. Mr. 
Henderson also donated to the Chapter a surburban lot which is 
worth not less than $250.00. A member of the Chapter added 
$50.00 to this land fund. $105.82 was cleared by a charming 
Cantata, "Laila," under the direction of Mrs. Fletcher Smith, a 
member of the Chapter. The entertainment retiected great 
credit upon the accomplished director and the graceful and lovely 
performers, some of them very young children. Mrs. Beall 
received a contribution of $4.00. These different amounts make 
up the sum of $1159.82.

Remarks— On January 19th, we unveiled a handsome Monu- 
ment to the Confederate soldiers of Anson county. The inscrip- 
tions on this monument were written by Col. Risden T. Bennett 
and one of them reads as follows: "These men embraced the 
principles of their leaders. They believed their social institutions 
and their right of local self-government imperiled by the avowed 
hostility of a large section of the Union. They resistid with 
every device of honorable warfare. The glory and grief of battle 
won and lost soldered them."

Remarks— On May 10th 1906, I took part in Memorial exercises 
in Raleigh, where my husband, Col. Wm. H. S. Burgwyn, de- 
livered before The Ladies Memorial Association, the address on 
Gen. Matt W. Ransom. As an apology for not contributing 
generally to work outside of our own borders, I will say that we 
have pledged ourselves to erect a Monument in Weldon to the 
Confederate Soldiers buried here with unmarked graves. Our 
opportunities for making money are not sufficient to allow us to do 
much, until this undertaking is accomplished. We have in bank 
now, for this purpose as the result of our work for the last three 
years, $611.17. 

We observed Gen. Lee's birthday by a large social gathering, 
at which eloquent addresses on Gen. Lee, President Davis, and 
Gen. Matt W. Ransom were delivered and a beautiful sketch of 
Gen. Junius Daniel, written by our Historian, .Mrs. Ida Wilkins, 
was read by her.

Remarks— This Chapter has done some original historical 
work, sending five papers, prepared by its members, to our State 
Historian. A petition comes from the Veterans of Lewis Dowd 
Wyatt Camp, Tarboro, N. C, to amend our Cross of Honor rules 
so a Cross may be worn by son of a Veteran, or they will at some 
time go into obscurity.

Remarks— The Davis Dickerson Mills Chapter, U. D. C. is still 
at work, though our efforts this year, have been confined to local 
needs. 

On the tenth of May we gave our usual picnic to the veterans 

First thing in the morning the veterans formed in line in front 
of the court house, the Daughters U. D. C. came next, then the 
school children carrying flowers. We marched to the cemetery, 
where the veterans halted, faced out, and the children marched 
past, giving flowers to each. They then proceeded to decorate 
the graves of their fallen comrades. After these ceremonies 
were over the line formed again and marched back to the giaded 
school building where a bountiful dinner was served to the 
veterans. Afterwards the Chapter, followed by the veterans, 
marched out in the yard, and there bestowed Crosses of Honor. 
Judge Justice then presented the Commander of the Veterans 
Camp, and President of U. D. C, with a gavel, each, made from 
the wood of an old persimmon tree, under which the soldiers used 
to rest when drilling, during our Civil war. The tree stands just 
in front of Judge Justice's residence, and in responding to presen- 
tation speech, Capt. Mclntire closed by saying "Woodman spare 
that tree." The veterans then marched to the court house 
followed by a large number of citizens, where two or three hours 
were spent in reminiscent talk by different old soldiers present. 
A number of soldiers and citizens contributed liberally to our 
monument fund. 

We are planning to raise about twenty five hundred dollars to 
place a monument on court house square. We have between four 
and five hundred dollars raised for this purpose. 

On Jefferson Davis' birthday, we again bestowed Crosses of 
Honor, making sixty two we have conferred this year. 

We held a very sweet, touching service in memory of Mrs. 
Jefferson Davis, on Sunday afternoon following her death. A 
number of veterans paid loving tribute to her, and spoke 
especially of the womanly modesty which ever characterized her. 

We have paid all our dues, but have not contributed anything 
to outside objects this year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. A. L. GRAYSON,

Remarks— All our energies have been bent towards raising the 
money for the Monument to the Confederate Soldiers of Catawba 
County. We now see our way clear to getting .it, and bids will 
be asked for between now and the first of 1907. We organized a 
Children's Chapter, in Conover, last February with forty-five 
enthusiastic members, and have increased the roll of the Stars 
and Bars Chapter, in Newton, to one hundred and six members - 
all of whom took part in our memorial day and reunion day exer- 
cises. We also raised three hundred dollars with which to enter- 
tain our county veterans at their annual reunion, August 18. At 
that time we had four hundred and fifty old soldiers present, 
together with mothers, wives, and widows of those who have ans- 
swered the last roll call. 

Catawba county has now about four hundred and sixty-five 
veterans within her borders: in some instances, father and son 
who fought side by side, still attend our reunions. 

Our veterans are all in verry comfortable circumstances, and 
we seldom have calls for help.

that much interest is manifested in our work. For the past year 
our work has been confined within our county. On June 3rd we 
entertained the veterans, and all rnjoyed the address of our Con- 
gressman, Hon. Charles H. Thomas. We observed Memorial 
Day, and have sent many wreaths to the graves of Confederate 
heroes. Owing to some negligence on the part of the custodian, 
we were unable to deliver any Crosses of Honor in June or Augest, 
but will deliver ten in January. We sincerely hope that some 
new rules can be made concerning the Crosses— this Chapter has 
been disappointed three times.

Remarks— To you in Convention assembled I bring cordial 
greetings from the Perquimans Chapter. We have gained four 
new members, which makes our enrollment thirty-nine. During 
the past year we have paid our state and general tax, Lee's and 
Jackson's birthdays were appropriately celebrated. In March we 
served dinner to the Confederate Veterans of Perquimans county. 
We have helped an old soldier since March, giving him seventeen 
dollars. We gave 35.00 to furnish a room at the Soldiers' Home, 
Raleigh. We have sent 1.00 to the Winnie Davis Chapter and 
25cts to the Senior class at Chapel Hill, for a suitable Confederate 
Memorial in the "Yackety Yack." One work of which we are 
very proud is the marking of the graves of seven Soldiers of this 
county. In the winter we gave a phonographic party, and in the 
spring an ice cream supper, from which we realized a neat sum. 
On May 10th Memorial exercises were held at the cemeteries, 
Rev. N. H. D. Wilson made a very appropriate and stirring speech. 
The Daughters and school children asssembled at the court house 
and marched to the cemeteries. We held our service among the 
graves, after which the little boys and girls decorated the graves 
with flowers and small Confederate flags.

the most successful day our Chapter has yet known.

this room very attractive and gather together many valuable his- 
torical relics.

so little, financially, because we are trying to procure granite

Remarks — We are sorry we have not been able to do more for 
worthy objects connected with our Chapter, especially the Soldiers 
Home in Raleigh. We have been devoting our time to raising 
funds to assist the citizens of Robeson county to erect a Monu- 
ment to our Confederate dead. We hope to raise the amount we 
have pledged at an early date and then we can take up other 
work.

Remarks— It was largely due to the earnest efforts and person- 
al appeals of our State President, Mrs. H. A. London, that our 
Chapter was organized October 1st, 1935, one year ago, and while 
we regret that we have not accomplished more, still we feel grati- 
fied that we have even made a beginning. We have thirty-eight 
members who have paid the taxes but only twenty-five registered 
on the State roll. Our greatest trouble is that so few attend the 
regular meetings. On June third we had a reunion, Major Lon- 
don delivered a fine address, after which eighty-four Crosses of 
Honor were presented and dinner served to the veterans which 
was much appreciated. 

Hoping to achieve greater results the coming year. 
Respectfully submitted,

ceived treatment in the John Hopkins Hospital, through the Col. 
R. G. A. Love Chapter. One limb was amputated, the other put 
in a brace; his general health is much improved and he is now 
walking on crutches. Through help from our Chapter, he has now 
a fruit stand on main street which will close when the weather 
turns cool. We want to give him a business education and any 
help for this purpose given by the Chapters will be gratefully ap- 
preciated and duly acknowledged.

Remarks— Our Chapter has just had its first birthday. 
During the year it has lost two members by death, two have 
married and left the town and two have been seriously ill. It 
will be seen from this that the work has been carried on with 
great difficulty and explains, in a measure, why so little has been 
accomplished. We have not presented any Crosses of Honor 
because we found that most of the Veterans to whom we sent 
blanks already had them. We will place the county stone in the 
Memorial Arch to be erected in Raleigh. It is our purpose to 
give assistance to the Soldiers' Home in Raleigh during the com- 
ing year. We are now better organized and planning great 
things for the second year of our life, in fact one entertainment 
for raising money is already planned. With every good wish 
and regreting that we are not present to offer them in person.

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

Remarks— I have the honor to be the bearer of greetings from 
the Gastonia Chapter of United Daughters of the Confederacy to 
this Convention, and to our hostess Chapter, the Julian S. Cair, 
by whose gracious invitation we are proud to be here. 

On the 12th day of December 1905, Mrs. J. P Gulp, assisted 
by Mrs. A. A. McLean, organized our Chapter with thirty-two 
charter members. Since that time we have increased to a memb- 
ership of seventy-two, whose dues and taxes have all been 
promptly paid and certificates furnished each member. Our first 
regular meeting was held on Generals Lee's and Jackson's birth- 
day. 

During the Eastertide we gave an entertainment, "Carnival 
of the Seasons," from which we realized $132.00. On April 7th, 
assisted by Mrs. J. L. Sexton, of Charlotte, N. C., I organized a 
children's chapter, the J. D. Moore Chapter, with a membership 
of fifty children, who are doing fine work and constantly increas- 
ing in number. 

Through our influence the first "Memorial Day" in Gaston 
county was observed on May the 10th, the brightest culmination 
of our efforts thus far! We served dinner to 162 old Veterans. 
The schools and business houses were closed and hundreds from 
both town and country joined in ihe impressive exercises which 
followed. Gen. Julian S. Carr, in his eloquent manner delivered 
a most excellent address, after which 128 Crosses of Honor were 
bestowed. Oh! what a scene -what a glorious reunion! It 
made our hearts thrill, and if we never accomplish another worthy 
deed, we bless the U. D. C. Organization, and feel repaid. The 
exercises of the day were concluded in decorating the graves of 
115 of our Confederate dead. 

June 3rd was appropriately celebrated. Rev. G. A. Sparrow 
delivered an address on the life of our only President, and each 
Veteran present, inspired with renewed enthusiasm, had something 
to say for the "Cause." Seventeen Crosses were bestowed and 
refreshments served. We have donated $35.00 for furnishing a 
room, known as the Gastonia Room, in the Soldiers' Home. 
$20.00 to the Memorial Arch in Ralaigh, $1.00 to Mrs. London 
for Chatham Monument and have given $10.00 toward the U. D. C. 
building at the Jamestown Exposition. 

Mrs. THOMAS LEE CRAIG, President.

Remarks This Chapter was organized March 20, 1906, with 
fifteen members and one added since. Having organized so 

recently we cannot report any work except that of trying to 
awaken interest in the organization. 

We hold monthly meetings; have paid our dues, and have 
twelve dollars in our treasury, and we hope during the coming 
year to add to our numbers and to labor more zealously for all the 
causes which our association holds dear.

CHILDREN'S CHAPTERS 



No. 1- WASHINGTON GRAYS CHAPTER, WASHINGTON. 

On last December, after attending the annual session of the 
North Carolina Conference, all joyous and hopeful God spoke again 
to me in a still small voice. Since that time I have not been able 
to do any work. Perhaps my work is done and God is teaching 
the beautiful lesson of submission. 

"Man cannot iudge the eternal mind by his 
But must accept the mysteries of lift- 
As purposes divine with perfect end, 
And in our darkest hours God's Angels stand 
To work man's present and eternal good." 

I ceased from active work in my beloved church (but my in- 
terest remains the same) still I kept burning upon the altar of my 
heart the cause of the Confederate soldier, for none can ever love 
the cause like those who lived in those days and saw Southern 
manhood marching to the front and bearing in his hand the flag 
still so dear to us today and will be until we see them camping in 
the city of eternal peace. I have a faithful helper, Miss Olive 
Gallagher, Children respect age, but she is in the bloom of 
youth she does the best she can. We have held but few meet- 
ings during this year, our dues have not been as large as in other 
years. The children's zeal remains the same (but can I say they 
miss their leader.) As I drive around the city, from doors and 
windows little blooming faces call out: "Miss May when will we 
meet again"."' I answer hopefully, soon, while a shower of tears 
are falling. They gladden my heart with their ringing laughter. 

I have spoken to my friends of Pamlico Chapter to appoint 
another, but they say, nay. (So sweet in them to try to cheer 
me along life's way.) 

The children having already contributed to the Davis Monu- 
ment feel that they wish to contribute again and enjoy the sweet 
privilege of giving. We will send dear Mrs. Addison one more 
dollar. We still continue marking the graves of Confederate 
dead, and help in the exercises on Memorial day and Lee's birth- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 115 

day. They march on Memsrial day and to them it is almost as 
great an honor as to the boys who marched in 1861. 

Many of us are wearing coronets of white, and will soon be 
robed in white, and be invited to the great banquet hall of the 
Lamb, where I hope, my dear sisters I shall look into your faces 
again, not seamed and wrinkled with the cars of life, but transfi- 
gured into His likeness all bright and glistening. 

Pardon me just here as I place one flower in the wreath of the 
Daughters to the fragrant memory of Mrs. Garland Jones, a 
devoted college-mate and friend in greener years. The delegates 
from the Johnston Pettigrew Chapter, Raleigh, come "sighing for 
the touch af a vanished hand," and indeed all of you are listening 
for the rsound of "a voice that is still." 

Continue in your noble work— do not grow weary. 

I would like so much to enjoy this Convention with you all, 
and with that typical Confederate soldier, Gen. Carr and my many 
friends in Durham.

The Chapter is in fine condition— much interest among the 
members. The monthly meetings are very well attended. Forty- 
seven members enrolled, twelve new members were added during 
the past year. The Chapter continues about the same in numbers 
for as fast as the older ones leave for boarding school the ranks 
are recruited from the younger set. 

The Chapter, under the management of Mis. J. P. Cook and 
Mrs. Allison, gave a most beautiful entertainment last Spring,and 
cleared over $50.00. 

We have contributed during the year the following: 

$1.00 to a crippled child, through Mrs. Branner of the Waynes- 
ville Chapter. 1.00 to Mrs. Parker for the Cabarrus county Ku 
Klux Banner. 2.00 to the Soldiers' Home at Raleigh. 5.00 to

the Sam Davis Chapter at Alton, 111. to help enclose the Confede- 
rate cemetery there, where over 2,000 Confederate prisoners are 
buried and until now, entirely uncared for. 
We have $52.00 in bank at present. 

President Jefferson Davis' birthday was observed by this 
Chapter, and we took part in the exercises on Memorial day, as 
usual. 

The officers for the ensuing year are: Mary Kimmons, Ass't.

We always serve refreshments at the meetings. The child- 
ren enjoy it and seem to expect it. We gave an entertainment 
the 17th of September and raised $15.00. 

We have also sent two pairs of sheets to the Soldiers' Home 
at Raleigh, and now have in the Treasury $12.00. Our band has 
decreased this fall. Some of the girls have gone to college, thus 
making our number for the time being smaller, but they cling to 
us and will assist during holidays. New members are rapidly 
coming in to fill the vacancies and we look forward to a still more 
flourishing future.

ASSISTANT HISTORIAN'S REPORT. 



[Note: The Assistant Historian's report was received too late 
to be incorporated in the Minutes proper, hence it appears in this 

place.] 



Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

I did not expert to give an especial address, or report, on this 
occasion, as I thought Miss Cameron would be with us; but I greet 
you with pride and pleasure as Assistant Historian of the North 
Carolina Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. 
Pride in our grand old State that was always conspicuous in all 
that was good and great, the Mother of Heroes! And pleasure 
in being selected to aid in collecting the great truths that will 
crystalize into jewels to deck the brow of our peerless and beloved 
North Carolina. 

I will first congratulate you on the beautiful weather for our 
Convention and the great number of delegates, or co-workers 
present, showing such interest in the great work before us. 

And I cannot forbear paying a passing tribute here to General 
Joseph E. Johnston (first Commander in Chief of the Confederate 
Army) a Confederate hero who fought faithfully, bled often from 
serious wounds on the battlefield, and was the last to surrender, 
here in a few miles of your beautiful city, (long after the surren- 
der of our great Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia.) He 
is a hero who never got the laurels he deserved, some one stole 
them, and it is our duty, Daughters of the Confederacy, to find 
those laurels, to see that justice is done him. "First at Bethel, 
farthest at Gettysburg and last at Appomattox," is inscribed on 
our banner, let the world know also that they were still fighting 
in North Carolina and that Joseph E. Johnston was the last to 
surrender. Fiat justicia ruat coelum! 

Let the place where Johnston surrendered be also remembered 
and discussed, and marked by our Julian S. Carr Chapter, unless 
it has already been suitably marked. There is too much tendency 
to laud Virginia heroes and history and forget our own. It has 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 119 

been said that North Carolina made more history than any other 
State, but lacked historians to record her great deeds. 

Ladies, lets stand together and do our duty. Each section 
has its heroes. There were many in our State in that civil war 
struggle, or period. Let each Chapter find those nearest it and 
record their unparalleled deeds of heroism; and don't forget John- 
ston. As Assistant Histoiian I advise every Chapter to have a 
paper, or reading, on him, I am afraid the children will never hear 
of, or forget him entirely. And it is our duty to establish the 
truth. The other Confederates of note and valor have had justice, 
they have been placed in the Hall of Fame, or on pedestals. But 
he has been neglected, and I think it my duty, as Assistant 
Historian, to call attention to this. 

Our first duty is to teach the youth of the land that our Con- 
federate heroes fought and died for principle; for their rights and 
homes, which were invaded. 

"Let laurels, drenched in pure Paruassian dews, 
Reward his memory dear to every Muse, 
Who, with a courage of unshaken root, 
In honor s field advancing a firm foot, 
Plants it upon the line that justice draws, 
And will prevail or perish in the Cause." 

And here the Text Book Committee (of which I'm a member) 
has much to do, and should not fail to do their duty, for a great 
deal depends thereon. 

Next I would recommend that tha Daughters of the Con- 
federacy in Convention assembled petition the State Legislature to 
place the statue of Zebulon Baird Vance, our great civil war hero, 
gifted United States Senator and North Carolina's greatest son 
(if we measure by deeds) in Statuary Hall, Washington, D. C. 

I would add that we should make a grand display of North 
Carolina history, relics, etc, at the approaching Jamestown Expo 
sition. That is the way to teach history! We should put our 
State to the front, where sh^ belongs. We should teach the 
world that we were right— what injustice and wrongs have been 
done us. And I know of no better opportunity. I have 
already conferred with the Jamestown Exposition Commissioners 
relative to this, and Col. Keely, of Richmond, Va., who was sent 
to Mecklenburg Hotel, Chase City, Va., to address the Press Con- 
vention of North Carolina and Virginia, has promised to aid us in 
every way, and will give us space in one of the Historical fire- 
proof buildings for our historical matter, relics, etc. —in case the 
U. D. C. has no building of its own— or unless we prefer our tx- 



120 Minutks of Tenth Annual Conv. n'i ion 

hibit in the North Carolina building. Among the North Carolina 
Commissioners I have a friend who will look to the interests of 
the United Daughters of the Confederacy andaii us in every way. 
So Daughters lets stand together, for in unity there is strength, 
and see what a determined body of women can do. 

Let every Chapter sand something, let every devoted Daughter 
of the Cause make an individual gift. That is, hunt up some- 
thing Confederate and sand, or carry it: And I would like to ask 
the ladies of the Durham Chapter to send the picture, or portrait, 
of General Julian S. Carr, a Confederate hero, philanthropist and 
devoted patriot. A man foremost in everything that concerns 
the good of our State. 

I would like to say to you that I am by nature; a midnight reader 
and a devoted student of History, and that I've been collec- 
ting Confederal e history about all of my life. As a child, in the 
time of the war between the States, was inspired by seeing Granville 
Grays march off to the war and the ladies of Oxford going out 
to bid them goodbye. As soon as I was old enough which was 
after the war, I wrote a Confederate poem entitled The Southern 
Bouquet. 

I continued to collect and will with pleasure contribute some 
of my early private collection. 

Many handsome Confederate sketches are in my possesion, 
and others sent to the Secretary of State for preservation. A 
list of the names sent me, (as the list is lengthy and I fear our 
minutes are limited) will not add it here, but in my next report 
will give the historical matter collected. 

I have endeavored to serve you faithfully. The seed is sown, 
but much of our work is yet to bring forth fruit and flower. 

Madam Historian, I am with you heart and hand in the great 
work before us. Wherever you lead, I will follow. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. W. O. SHANMON, 

Assistant Historian.

THE NATIONAL CONVENTION AT GULFPORT, 



The thirteenth annual convention of the United Daughters of 
the Confederacy met at Gulf port, Miss., November 14th to 17th. 

This will be a synopsis of the proceedings: 

Twenty-six States were represented with a voting strength of 
1,355. Texas headed the list with 148 votes. Virginia came 
next with 145. ; North Carolina 84; far off Mexico, 1 vote. 

The President General read her report, which was printed in 
pamphlet form and distributed to the delegates. It covered all 
the decisions from her office during the past year, twenty-five in 
all— and offered thirteen recommedations to be considered by the 
convention. This was a carefully prepared, splendid report. She 
referred various parts of it to committees. Divisions are urged to 
arouse interest in erecting monuments on the great battle field 
parks of Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Chicamauga and Shiloh. "In 
March, Mrs. Henderson received a letter from Hon. John Sharpe 
Williams, enclosing one from the Secretary of War giving permis- 
sion for the United Daughters of the Confederacy to erect a 
monument in Arlington, to the 266 Confederates buried there. 
She wrote and thanked the Secretary of War for this letter and 
said she would use her influence to have the United Daughters of 
the Confederacy show our appreciation of the marks of respect 
and appreciation of our illustrious dead, shown by the North dur- 
ing this year, by uniting in an effort to draw the two sections 
nearer together than they have been. " She recommended that the 
United Daughters of the Confederacy make an appropriation for 
the Arlington monument. Her best rocommendation was that we 
bend our energies to educating the children and grand- 
children of Confederate veterans who lack means of acquir- 
ing an education. "In a few years the Confederates who need 
our help will all be gone — monuments will all be built but as long 
as the world lasts, there will still be descendants of Confederate 
men and women who will need to be helped to an education, if not 
to a common school education, then to a collegiate course. Some 
of the States are making great strides in this direction, etc: I 



122 Minutks of Tenth Annual Convention 

quote one of her decisions which is important. "Upon the 
receipt of an application which fails to show the eligibility of the 
applicant for membership in the United Daughters of the Confed- 
eracy, the registrar of division so receiving; should return it to 
the chapter saying that the applicant has failed to show her eligi- 
bility to membership in the United Daughters of the Confederacy 
and therefore cannot be a member until she does show this." 
this shows that the State registrar has a right to refuse to regis- 
ter ineligible applicants even if the chapter committees sign the 
papers. 

The recording secretary, Mrs. Hickman, reported that the 
United Daughters of the Confederacy, since its organization, had 
issued 1,072 charters for chapters— 102 of which had been issued 
this year. 

The treasurer's report showed for this year total receipts 
$5,825.92, and a total expenditure of #5,179.26 

The amendments to the constitution which passed at this 
convention, were those making "Roberts' Rules of Order" author- 
ity in parliamentary rulings in the United Daughters of the Con- 
federacy. The abolishing of salaried officers in the United 
Daughters of the Confederacy, the giving of a vote in person to 
all officers of the U. D. C, and the making of the custodian of 
crosses of honor an officer of the U. D. C. The first amendment 
was tabled. 

The memorial services on the second day waere impressive. 
Prayer, and the hymn, "How Firm a Foundation," andresolutions 
of respect and love as a tribute to the memory of Mrs. Jefferson 
Davis. Also resolutions on General Joseph Wheeler and some 
distinguished members of the U. D. C. Following this, the 
United Daughters of the Confederacy made an appropriation 
from its treasury for a memorial window to Mrs. Davis to be 
placed in the "Church of our Redeemer, " at Biloxi, where Mrs. 
Davis had erected memorial windows to her husband and Miss 
Winnie Davis. 

A letter written by Mrs. Davis several years ago, was read in 
convention. This explained her reasons for living at the North. 
It was received in silence with bowed heads, upon motion of Mrs. 
Parker of New York. 

Colonel Hilary Herbert made a plea for the Confederate mon- 
ument at Arlington. He told of the 3 1-2 acre lot where rest our 
dead, whose graves have been marked by the United States Gov- 
ernment, with name and command and C. S. A. on each. A 
mound is left in the center of the lot for the monument. What

place could be more fitting for a grand monument than Arlington, 
the home of General Lee? All contributions to it can be sent to 
the Arlington Confederate Monument Association, care of Ameri- 
can security and Trust Company, Washington, D. C. The United 
Daughters of the Confederacy from their general treasury pledged 
$500 a year to this monument till its completion, It also gave 
$300 to the Shiloh monument, $50.00 to Beauregard, $50 to a mon- 
ument to General Morgan, ?50 to a monument to Wirtz at Ander- 
sonville Ga. 

The United Daughters of the Confederacy passed resolutions 
adopting Miss Dixie Leache's Lee memorial calendar as means of 
raising money for U. D. C. purposes. 

The Virginia Division invited the United Daughters of the 
Confederacy to a building at Jamestown, which would be a fac 
simile of Beauvoir. This building would be erected and managed 
by the Virginia Division, and it was hoped it would receive the 
hearty support of all the United Daughters of the Confederacy 
who come to Jamestown. 

On the retirement of Mrs. Gabbett as Custodian, it was voted 
to give her a gold cross in recognition of her services to the U. D. 
C, and a suitable pin or emblem, with the word founder inscribed, 
was also voted to Mrs. Goodlett. 

A resolution was passed unanimously not to have sponsors at 
tha reunion at Richmond, Va., next year, but to devote all the 
money and time to the care and entertainment of the old veterans. 

In giving the report of the North Carolina division, I read a 
petition from the North Carolina veterans asking that a second 
cross of honor be given to veterans who had lost or broken theirs. 
This seemed to appeal to Veterans in the hall who no doubt had 
broken or lost their crosses. The crosses of honor rules are 
changed. A State Recorder of Crosses was decided on— a series 
of books: Chapter, State, and United Daughters of the Confederacy 
Custodian book, must now be kept. It was also decided that a 
cross lost may be replaced by re-presenting the certificate upon 
which the first cross was given, so the old men can get another 
cross in place of the one lost. 

The United Daughters of the Confederacy chapters are to 
unite with other Confederate orders in observing the one hun- 
dredth anniversary of the birth of General Lee, to be held at 12 
o'clock, January 19th, wherever there is a chapter or veterans to 
celebrate it. 

Resolutions were adopted expressing appreciation of the 
efforts of the veterans and sons of veterans to erect a monument 



124 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

to our Confederate mothers and grandmothers. But the ladies 
seemed to prefer the money put in a school or a home for Con- 
federate women. 

The greatest pleasure of the convention was a visit to the old 
home of Jefferson Davis. "Beauvoir, " which is now the Sol- 
diers' Home of Mississippi. It is indeed Beauvoir — for a more 
beautiful view of the placid Gulf could not be seen— its waters 
silver in the sunshine, Here the old men sit with their wives in 
peace and quiet. For at this Soldiers' Home the wives come 
also. Why cannot North Carolina also provide at our Soldiers' 
Home, in Raleigh, for the wives, and widows also, if they wish to 
come and be provided for in their old age? 

The Mississippi Daughters entertained the Convention most 
beautifully, giving them charming receptions, etc. Each day a 
lunch was served at the Pavilion, where the meetings were held. 
Each delegate was presented with a sterling silver U. D. C. 
spoon, and a flag pin. 

In conclusion I wish to express my admiration of the dignity 
and ability with which Mrs. Henderson presided over that large 
concourse of women.

Hn flfocmoriam. 



MISS MARY RUMLEY. 

WASHINGTON. 

Pamlico Chapter, No. 43, U. D. C, was called upon on Sep- 
tember 29th, 1906, to give up one of its valued daughters, Miss 
Mary Rumley. A loyal daughter; ever responsive to any demands 
for the wellbeing of the old soldiers; deeming Pamlico Chapter's 
work a great one; and always heartily in accord with any means 
adopted, and ever devoted to all her interests. We miss her 
ready sympathy, and her Chapter's loss is a great one. 

Mrs. E. M. BROWN. 



MRS. GARLAND JONES. 

RALEIGH. 

Mrs. Florence Hill Jones : died September 2d, 1906 ; born in 
Franklin county, North Carilina, July 24th, 1847. Daughter of 
of the late Major Daniel S. Hill; married to Mr. Garland Jones, 
February 25th, 1869. 

Mrs. Jones was, at the time of her death, President of the 
Confederate Monument Society of Raleigh. This association was 
the principal factor in providing the Confederate Cemetery here, 
and removing the remains of Confederate soldiers from the spot 
that had been confiscated by the United States for the Federal 
Cemetery. 

Mrs. Junes was also, .for years, recording secretary of the 
North Carolina Division U. D. C, and vice president for North 



126 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

Carolina, of the Jefferson Davis Monument Association, and one 
of the Committee in charge of the construction of this Monu- 
ment. The last work she did was perfecting plans and details for 
this object. As one of her co-workers has justly said: "Not a 
Veteran in the Soldiers' Home, not a member of the L. O'B. 
Branch Camp of Confederate Veterans, not a co-worker among the 
patriotic women of the South, and not a true and loyal son of the 
Confederacy who has not causes to rise up and call her blessed." 

No work was too arduous, no obstacle was unsurmountable to 
this patient and loyal spirit towards the objects of her patriotic- 
endeavor. The U D. C. of the South and especially the N. C. 
Division, owe her a debt of gratitude, and we inscribe these lines 
to her memory: Hanc olim meminisse juvabit. 

TRIBUTE TO 

MRS. GARLAND JONES. 

"She was my friend, 
Just and true to me." 



Mrs. WILLIAM H. OVERMAN 



Salisbury, N. C. 



MRS. THOS. B. WOMACK. 

RALEIGH. 

Departed this life on October 4th, 1906: Susan Taylor Womack, 
beloved wife of Judge Thomas B. Womack, of the Raleigh, N. C. 
bar, in her 41st year. She was the daughter of Captain John 
W. Taylor of Pittsboro, N. C, a brave Confederate Captain of 
Company M. 15th N. C. I. 

Her death occurred in Asheville, N. C, where she had been 
sometime in search of health, and her burial was in Pittsboro, 
her old home. She had made her home in Raleigh for eleven 
years, taking active interest in the work of the U. D. C, and 
was president of the Johnston-Pettigrew Chapter several years. 
A good woman has gone to rest. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 127 
MRS. W. H. HUGHES. 

RALEIGH. 

Elizabeth Henrietta Miller was born in Norfolk county, Va., 
September 5th, 1840; her parents being Elizabeth Brackett and 
Christopher Miller. 

At the beginning of the Civil War Elizabeth's three brothers 
entered the Confederate army; which left her mother without 
protection except that of a few slaves who remained faithful. 
She thought it dangerous to live unpi-otected as they were, there- 
fore they moved to Bowers Hill, Virginia, and there she and her 
daughters lived until the close of the war. 

On April 5th, 1865, just two days before Lee's surrender at 
Appomattox, Elizabeth was married to Augustus W. Long, then 
employed in the Navy Yard at Portsmouth. He lived only a year 
and a half, and on September 13th, 1869, she was again married to 
William H. Hughes, an ex-Confederate, having been a member of 
the Portsmouth Light Artillery. She lived in Portsmouth until 
1882, when she moved to Raleigh where she lived until her death 
January, 22, 1906. 

RUTH E. HUGHES. 



CHARLOTTE PAYS TRIBUTE TO HER LOST ONES. 

The Stonowall Jackson Chapter, U. D.C., Charlotte, will keep in 
loving remembrance the names of the dear ones who were called 
to higher service in 1906: 

MRS. MARY A. OSBORNE. 

MRS. LIZZIE YATES CLARKSON. 

MRS. JULIA A. SMITH. 

MRS. THORNWELL McKAY. 



MRS. KATE BRADSHAW CLAPP. 

GREENSBORO. 

Passed to her rest, on July 13th. 1906: Kate Bradshaw Clapp 
in the flush of early womanhood, a devoted young wife and 



128 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention 

mother, with her face to the morning, she gladly answered to the 
"Come up higher." 

Greensboro Chapter Daughters of the Confederacy sadly 
mourns the loss of this devoted "daughter." Not only as chair- 
man of the music committee, but wherever and whenever her help 
was needed, heart and hand never failed to respond to duty's call. 
Her help could be relied on, even before it was solicited, and the 
world is less bright because of her passing. 

CADDIE SPARROW DALTON, 
President Guilford Chapter U. D. C. 



MISS A. E. PEARSON. 

MORGANTON. 



The S. McD. Tate Chapter, U. D. C. has lost a valued mem- 
ber in the death of Miss Ann Elizabeth Pearson, which occurred 
August 2nd, 1906. She was one of the noble women, who by 
self-sacrifice and effort aided our brave soldiers, 

"Who bore the toil, who kept the faith, 
And passed into the night." 

Then her best efforts were made to honor and keep dear the 
memory of those heroes and for years she was Secretary of The 
Ladies' Memorial Association, never failing to go with the many 
or few, who observed the sacred duties of Memorial Day. 

When the U. D. C. Chapter was formed, she was chosen 
Historian, which position she faithfully filled unto the end. 

None knew so well the name and resting place of each soldier 
and until the last Memorial Day, she had never failed to go with 
tears and flowers to every grave. 

Her history will be treasured and her place in our Chapter can 
never be filled bv one so fitted for the work. 



MISS MARY WHITWELL BOND 

Recording Secretary of Frank Bird Chapter, No. 635, Windsor, N. 
C, died; after an illness of two weeks, from typhoid fever, on 
July 2nd, 1906; aged 22 years. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 129 

MRS. LENORA FLEMMING McKAY. 

Chicora Chapter, Dunn, has been visited by the reaper, death; 
from our midst has gone the spirit of a noble, good woman, and 
many bleeding hearts are left behind, yet in the shadows that 
gather about the hearths of the entire population of the town and 
community for "none knew her bnt to love her, and none named 
her but to praise her ," there is a radiant light that one has passed 
to the scenes eternal as pure and as noble as is possible to obtain 
unto in this life. 

The life of Mrs. Lenora McKay has been a benediction to all 
with whom it has touched, that points to higher, nobler and 
grander things. She has left behind her that life that will live, 
tho she sleeps. Our town and cammunity has sustained a loss 
that will be felt for all time. 



GOLDSBORO MOURNS HER DEAD. 
Thomas Ruffin Chapter, Goldsboro: 

ENTERED INTO LIFE ETERNAL, 

MRS. PAULINE BROADHEAD EDWARDS. 
Born May 17th, 1871. 
Died August 13th, 1906. 

MRS, CARRIE BORDEN DANIELS. 
Born December 10th, 1859. 
Died October 12th, 1906. 



MRS. BAYLEY. 



Mrs. Bayley was the oldest member of the "Henry Wyatt 
Chapter, U. D. C, of Selma, and joined under her own brave 
deeds. At the time of the war Mrs. Bayley (nee Miss White) 
lived at the famous Temple Farm. She was driven from her 
home, the government seized it and still holds it as a place of 
historic interest. She nursed and cared for wounded soldiers the 



130 Minutes of Tenth Annual Convention' 

entire four years of the war, having helped to nurse the first 
wounded at Bethel. One of her bravest deeds was to carry a 
message through the lines to one of our generals. 

MRS. JENNINGS POPE. 



Mrs. Jennings Pope who was beloved and known by all as 
"Rosa Redeardson" was the truest, purest type of Southern 
womanhood. 

Taken from us in her youth and happiness the Henry Wyatt 
Chapter will ever remember her as one of its brightest and noblest 
daughters. 



MRS. JOHN. P. LEACH. 

LITTLETON. 

On the 20th of March death came unexpectedly and claimed 
one of our brightest and best: Mrs. John P. Leach, Jr., a charter 
member of the Roanoke Minute Men Chapter. 

She was a young woman of sterling worth, of rare grace and 
beauty. Though we deeply deplore our loss, we bow in submis- 
sion to Our Father's will. 

Her tiny babe was made an honorary member of our Chapter. 

Mrs. M. E. CLAY, 
Delegate Roanoke Minute Men. 



MRS. MARY C. MEBANE. 

GRAHAM. 

At the advanced age of eighty-eight, Mrs. Mary C. Mebane, 
widow of the late Hon. Giles Mebane, died at her home in Graham, 
February 22, 1906. Her husband who died June 3, 1899, at the 
age of ninety years, served many terms in the legislature and was 
largely influential in settling the State debt. It was while in the 
legislature that the county of Alamance was separated from 
Orange and at his request Mrs. Mebane gave the new county its 
name. She was a daughter of the distinguished statesman, 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 131 

Bartlett Yancey, who was a congressman, frequently a member of 
the legislature and Speaker of the House several times. 

Sweetness, gentleness and christian piety were Mrs. 
Mebane's most marked characteristics. She was a perfect lady 
according to the very high standard of the age to which she be- 
longed. 



MRS. EMMA PAGE ALBRIGHT. 

At her home in Graham on the night of May 28, Mrs. Emma 
Page Albright, beloved wife of Thomas A. Albright, departed this 
life. The end came very suddenly. She was born near the 
village of Latta, S. C., December 11, 1876. She left two child- 
ren, one of which an infant of a few months, has since died. 
The deceased was a member and active worker in the Presbyterian 
church. She is enrolled as one of our charter members and al- 
ways took the keenest interest in all things Confederate. 

In her death her church, our chapter and the community have 
lost a dear sweet lovable woman.

his Veteran ancestor— and Confederate widows of Veterans, ap-

presentation shall be accompanied with such ceremonies as will 
give proper dignity to the occasion. 

RULE V. 

Section 1. A Veteran, in good standing, having lost his 
Ct^oss, may have it replaced once, only, by applying to the Presi- 
dent of the Chapter from which he received the Cross, and he 
must furnish copy of the certificate on which the Cross was first 
bestowed. If a second Cross is lost, a certificate may be given, 
in testimony that such Veteran has been awarded a Cross. No

MINUTES 

OF THE 

ELEVENTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 

OF THE 

United Daughters o( the Confederacy 

florth Carolina. T>i*Vision. 



FIRST DAY. -Morning Session. 

The eleventh annual convention of the North Caro- 
lina Division, United Daughters of the Confederacy, 
met in the city of Greensboro on Wednesday, October 
ninth 1907. at ten o'clock. 

The handsome auditorium of the Smith 
Memorial building had been most tastefully 
decorated with flags of the Confederacy and red and 
white bunting. The handsome Hag of the Guilford 
chapter hung in the back-ground, together with the 
flag of the North Carolina Division, and the beautiiul 
chapter banner of the Johnson Pettigrew chapter. 
Conspicuous among the banners hung the flag of the 
Guilford Grays, the much valued property of the Guil- 
toi' I chapter. A very convenient room with writing 
materials, daily papers and a convention post office had 
also been provided in the building. 

It was indeed most appropriate that the wives, 
daughters and sisters of the greatest heroes that the 



Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

world has ever produced should hold their annual 
meeting in this noted an 1 beautiful city. A city where 
the sturdy soldiers from the Blue Ridge and the neigh- 
boring foothills met their brave brothers from the sea 
shore and middle sections in their march against a 
common foe. Through this Gate City poured the hordes 
from the far Southern States on their march with their 
Carolina brethren to victory or the grave upon the 
bloody fields of Virginia or on the cold Pennsylvania 
soil. Here will we again pledge our allegiance to keep 
p live the history of the men who fought and bled for 
justice, while they donned the jacket of grey. The pre- 
liminary exorcises of the convention were opened by 
the gifted daughter of the entertaining city, the presi- 
dent of the Guilford chapter, Mrs. R. F. Dalton, who, 
after music, introduced Rev. W. A. Lambreth. who 
delivered a very fine prayer. The charming voices of 
a quartette, c >m > xecl of Mrs. J. J. Stone, Mrs. Jan'ie 
Foushee, Mrs. Myra Albright and Miss Nan Wood 
delighted the audience, after which Mr. Z. V. Taylor, 
in behalf of the city of Greensboro, in a very grace- 
ful manner tendered to the delegates a warm welcome 
to the Gate City. 

MR. TAYLOR'S ADDRESS. 

Madam President, Daughters of the Confederacy, Ladies and 
Gentlemen: — 

The City of Greensboro has perhaps during the last decade well 
merited the title of the Convention City as well as the Gate City. 
During this period her charms have been such that she has wooed 
men from all classes of business and all kinds of professions to 
assemble here for a few days and deliberate upon those things which 
would most conduce to their welfare. 

Pride has she felt in being thus selected, but were I forced to- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 7 

day to use one word to describe her emotions in entertaining this 
body which assembles here, not to discuss matters which shall con- 
duce to its own well being, but to plan how it may make the 
greatest sacrifice for the welfare of others and the perpetuation of 
our richest heritage I should be at a complete loss. 

Welcoming you therefore in her name, while an honored and 
pleasant task, is nevertheless such an one as cannot be .adequately 
performed in the brief space which is prescribed to me. 

I have time only to say that Greensboro welcomes you with 
commingled feelings oi honor, gratitude and reverence. 

Honor in that we have within our borders this splendid gather- 
ing of all that is brightest and the best of Southern womanhood. 

Gratitude when we remember your noole unselfish work not 
only to brighten the pathway of the old Confederate soldier as he 
totters forward with feeble step toward his last bivouac, but also 
when we recall your heroic immolation of self to see that his dead 
comrade shall no longer sleep in unknown and forgotten graves and 
thus give answer to the supplication of the South's poet laureate 
when he prayed: 

"Give me a land with a grave in each spot 
And the names in the graves which shall not be forgot." 

For you have not only done these things but as well have 
you verified Ins rapturous acclaim when he sang: 
"For oat of the gloo n future brightness is born 
As after the night comes the sunrise of morn, 
And the graves of the dead v/ith grass evergrown 
May yet form the foot-stool of liberty's throne. 
And each single wreck in the warpath oi might 

Shall yet be a rock in the temple of right. 
We welcome you with reverence when we know that some of 
you passed through those four dread years whose heroic deeds you 
have forever emblazoned on the page of history, chiseled in granite 
and enshi-ined in our hearts, enduring more, suffering more, and 
achieving more even than that heroic biit poetic figure at the front 
whom George W. Cable has described as: 

"The immortal Soitthern boy shivering in loathsome rags and 
tatters, as he thirsts by day and hungers by night, as he ditches and 
lies down in ditches, so blackened with powder and dust and 
smoke that his mother in Heaven would not know her child, yet 
hoping on and on and by the campfires of the Shenandoah and in the 
ditches of Petersburg singing to messmates with shaded eyes." The 



8 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

years creep slowly by Lorena and her bright smile haunts me still. 

For what melody howsoever sweet can bring hope to mother, 
wife or sweetheart when her delicate limbs ache from toil, her eyes 
are strained with watching and her heart is racked with uncertainty 
and foreboding as she realizes that the next word from the trout 
may bring the news that he whose wellbeing means iar more to her 
own life is lying dead upon the banks of the Rappahannock, in the 
tangled thickets of the wilderness or in the ditches which he him- 
self lias dug around Petersburg. 

Greensboro therefore throws open to you not the gates of her 
city but the doors of her homes and we welcome you not only to 
our fireside but to our hearts. 

The welcome from the Guilford chapter to h< r sister 
Daughters was given by that warm hearted, brave sol- 
dier and statesman. Major C. M. Stedmm, a gentle- 
man of the days vhich are no more, a typical South- 
erner, a man true and tried. 



MAJ. STEDMAN'S ADDRESS. 



Ladies of the North Carolina Division of the United Daughters 

of the Confederacy. 

To me has been accorded by the Guilford Chapter of your or- 
ganization the honor and privilege of extending to you a cordial 
welcome to the hospitality of this city. It is offered not in the per- 
functory discharge of a duty imposed by the usages of society. It 
is not merely the expression of appreciation of the courtesy and 
friendship manifested towards our people by the selection of 
Greensboro as the place for holding this convention. It is prompt- 
ed not alone by the refinements of polite life, but also dictated by 
that high, sincere and enduring sentiment, which binds together all 
those who love moral and personal heroism as exemplified by the 
deeds of the Confederate soldier, than whom history through all the 
ages has furnished no more heroic, unstained or faultless model for 
the perpetuation of these virtues, without no nation can achieve 
or retain greatness. 

The Guilford Chapter disclaims any superior advantages for this

city over other localities in North Carolina as a fit and proper place 
for the assemblage of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, 
whose purpose it is to make the pathway of the few Confederate 
soldiers who still linger amongst us, clear and bright; and when 
they sink to rest to preserve a true record of their deeds, as an in- 
centive to future generations. Nor does it claim that the people of 
Greensboro have precedence over her sister citizens in love and re- 
gard for the Confederate soldier; and though dear to them, his mem- 
ory will ever be, his renown is the common heritage of all North 
Carolinians, who alike will ever gladly greet you. Every hamlet, 
town and city in North Carolina stands ready with sincere hearts 
and with gates wide open to offer to you the best of all they have, 

To any and all who are attracted by great memories a visit to 
Greensboro is alluring and delightful. Close by is the Battlefield of 
Guilford Court House, where was struck the blow which made 
inevitable the fall of Cornwallis; which staggered British power in 
the American colonies and fore-shadowed their independence. 
When Zebulon B. Vance, Governor of North Carolina, of blessed 
memory, was driven from the capital of the State by the advance 
of Sherman's army, he came to Greensboro and on the 28th of 
April, 1865 in the law office of our honored citizen, Mr. L. M. 
Scott, on North Elm Street, drafted and issued to the people of the 
State his famous proclamation, to further the ends of peace.domestic 
tranquility and the general welfare of the people. During the 
latter part of the Civil War, it was the gate-way, through which the 
South sent its soldiers to the fields oi Virginia, to march with Lee 
and Jackson. With them went her own children, her bravest and 
best. Many of them never returned, but now rest by the banks of 
the Rappahannock and Rapidan, whilst mother, wife and sister 
have long waited for them in vain. 

In every age and in every civilized State woman has won the 
reverence and love of mankind by her devotion to the land of her 
birth, by her self-sacrifice, by her fortitude in the hour of disaster, 
by her supreme sense of duty, by her enduring fidelity to every 
caiise to which she has plighted her faith and her heart. Yet I do 
declare unto you in the light of all history, that never has she 
exhibited these traits in more resplendent lustre, than in that age of 
glory, 1861-1865, which ranks in great military achievements with 
the epoch of Hannibal and Napoleon 1, and far excels then both in 
furnishing to the world models of moral grandeur and heroism. In 
that era the woman of the South, by the exercises of every virtue 



10 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

known to the highest type of womanhood, gave to her soldiery the 
moral courage and that power which ever accompanies it, which 
made their great deeds possible. Why is it, that in every land 
where virtue, truth and valor have a home, the mention of the army 
of Northern Virginia, arouses interest and kindles enthusiasm, it 
matters not whether its people were friendly to the North or South 
in the great conflict between the sections? Why does youth and 
old age, the young man dreaming of glory in the days to come, and 
the maiden who shrinks from the thought of strife in any form, 
why do they all alike rejoice as they listen with delight to the 
story of its career? Is it the sanguinary slaughter, which dyed red 
with blood the fields of Gettysburg, Fredericksburg, Sharpsburg t 
the Wilderness and the other great theaters of war illumined by its 
valor? Not so. It is the glow of patriotic enthusiasm which gilds 
with vmfading lustre its great achievements and which will warm 
the heart of man through every succeeding age. It is moral grand- 
eur which became the very life of the army of Northern Virginia, 
which sheds a halo of glory around and about its name, and which 
attracts the permanent attention and admiration of mankind. 

And when the struggle had ended and the cause for which they 
had prayed and for which they had sent husband and brother with 
their blessing to the battlefield, had gone down in gloom and dis- 
aster and was forever adjudicated, the women of the South did not 
cease their vigils or their efforts. History is ofttimes false. They 
determined it should not unjustly cast stain or obloquy upon the 
names of those who had made the fight and kept the faith with them 
for the land they loved so well. They formed societies to preserve 
the truth of history. Who will dare to say that either arrogant 
power or corrupt wealth can taint or pollute the stream of tradition 
guarded by their prayers, their loyalty and their love? But the 
tide of time turns not backward. Over forty years have come and 
gone since the great drama was closed at Appomattox. The moth- 
ers of that day have gone to the blessed rest provided for them, 
but they had taught their daughters the true story of the great con- 
flict and they entrusted to them the continuation of the pious task 
of love and duty which they had commenced. And today your 
society exists in every Southern State and is honored and respect- 
ed throughout the length and breadth of this republic. It guards 
-with unceasing care the name and fame of the Confederate Soldier 
and not one of them will ever know want who lives within reach 
of a chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 11 

But I would violate the proprieties of this occasion, should 1 
consume your time and keep you from the work for which you are 
assembled. May a kind providence prosper your organization and 
»rant success without limit to the high aims and endeavors, which 
animate and control it. May its existence, founded in loyalty and 
love, nourished by virtue and maintained by fidelity, be perpetuat- 
ed by your children and your children's children through all the 
a<*es to come. May its influence for true elevation of character be 
recognized not only in our Southern land which gave it birth, but 
in every portion of our common country. May every people in 
every land learn from the history, which you shall preserve, the 
true character of the Confederate soldier and the motives which 
actuated him in the mighty conflict, which ended in his defeat, but 
which has made immortal the valor and unconquerable resolution 
with which he maintained the fight. And may the halo of glory 
which encircles his name be as radiant and bright, when he answers 
the call on Resurrection Morn as, when he furled his flag and ac- 
cepted in good faith the decree from which there is no appeal. 

We tender to you the most cordial welcome our hearts can 
give, the fullest friendship our social life can offer. May your 
deliberations be guided by wisdom and may success crown all your 
effort. May all your ills be forgotten and when you return to your 
homes, may you find no shadows upon your thresholds but the 
bright and gentle sunshine of peace, quiet and happiness and may 
they ever abide with you and yours. 

In the absence of our honored State President, 
Mrs. W. S. Parker, who was detained at home by the 
illness of her daughter, the reply to these kind words 
of welcome was made by Mrs. I. W. Paison of Charlotte. 



MRS. FAISON'S RESPONSE. 
In the name of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, her 
delegates and visiting members,I thank you Madam President of the 
Greensboro Chapter and Maj. Stedman, representing your Chapter 
and Mr. Taylor representing the city for the words of friendly 
welcome to this charming and historic city. When we accepted 
your invitation last October m Durham we fully realized all that 
invitation carried of loving courtesy and gracious hospitality. 



L2 Minutes op Eleventh Annual Convention 

Your State, your County and your people were made famous 
over a hundred years ago when the battle of Guilford Court Hoiise 
was fought March 15, 1781 on your soil just a short distance from 
your now prosperous and growing city. 

Many years have elapsed since that time and then the stormy 
days of '61 to '65 rolled over our Southern land and many stirring 
scenes were enacted and never to be forgotten. To-day, we, the 
women of the South, the United Daughters of the Confederacy, meet 
here to renew our vows of loyalty to the sacred memories of the 
past, and as an association, whose avowed purpose is to com- 
memorate the heroic deeds of our dead and hand down true history 
to our children. 

In all history there is no record of any such society as ours. 
In all by gone years never have the women of any defeated people 
been banded together for the sublime purpose of proving the right- 
fulness of the cause for which their men fought and women endured 
and caring for the wounded and afflicted who survived. 

In all history of the past, there exists no movement by the 
women of the country to secure the records of the truth in history 
about a lost, yet sacred cause. We have met here now united in 
our work for a grand purpose, grand in its origin, patriotic in its 
undertaking and faithful in its ministrations. 

Time has no power to obliterate from our minds the memory of 
the deeds of heroism enacted during those four years of conflict 
and death or take from our hearts the devotion they hold for the 
heroes of the South, from the immortal Lee and Jackson to the 
youngest private in her service. 

North Corolina has many historic deeds for which she has 
never been given credit. Situated between Virginia on the one 
hand and South Carolina on the other and always a verv modest 
State, she did not proclaim these facts as the other two states, who 
made the welkin ring — as it v/cre — of their deeds of valor. North 
Carolina had the first "tea party" at Edenton and Wilmington and 
were not disguised as Indians as they were at Boston, Mass., but 
boldly proclaimed they would not be taxed unjustly and threw the 
tea overboard. The first white child, Virginia Dare, was born on 
Roanoke Island, N. C. N. C. declared her independence of the Brit- 
ish Crown in Charlotte, Mecklenburg, N. C. May 20th, 1775, more 
than a year before it was proclaimed in Philadelphia, Pa. And last, 
but the grandest of all, North Carolina was "First at Bethel, furthest 
at Gettysburg and Chickamauga and last at Appomattox." With 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 13 

such a grand history and glorious past, we cannot go backward but 
must push forward and as old David Crockett said "after you get 
there, keep on going". 

So, standing here to-day we realize what has been done and 
promise to endeavor to keep our thoughts, actions and work up to 
the standard. 

Again I thank you for your kind words of welcome, and may 
we live many years to hear them from other towns and individ- 
uals. 

Again most delightful music charmed the many 
listeners after which Mrs. Dalton turned over the gavel 
to the presiding officer, who declared the Convention 
of 1907 formally opened. 

As the three vice presidents had notified Mrs. 
Parker that they feared they would not be able to at- 
tend the convention, the mantle of the president fell 
upon the Treasurer, Mrs, I. W. Faison who in a few 
well chosen words called the convention to order and 
had the Recording Secretary call the roll. This show- 
ed none of the honorary officers present except Mrs. . 
E. E. Moffett, honorary president, also one of the 
vice presidents found at the last moment that she could 
attend. All other State officers answered to their 
names as well as the 1 olio wing chapters;

The first duty of the organized body of Daughters 
was to send a telegram of love and sympathy to their 
State President, Mrs. W. S. Parker, with regrets at 
her absence from them. 

Mr. G. S. Bradshaw requested permission, which 
was readily granted, to extend to the delegates an in- 
vitation to be the guests of the Elks at luncheon at one 
■ o'clock in the spacious dining room in the basement 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 17 

of the Smith Memorial building. This gracious invita- 
tion was accepted with a rising vote of thanks. 

Mrs. Dalton then gave a cordial invitation to a drive 
over the' city at four o'clock as the guests of the ladies 
of town, which was also accepted by a rising vote of 
thanks. 

Mrs. Paison then read a very full and entertaining 
report of ihe state work during the year, which was 
written by the president, Mrs. W. S. Parker. This was 
received as read. 



PRESIDENT'S REPORT. 

Dear Daughters of the Confederacy: 

With what bright anticipations a short twelve months ago, I 
looked forward to this day when, after another year of loving ser- 
vice, we should look into each others' faces again. 

The desperate illness of a beloved daughter prevents my com- 
ing to you. 

Those of you who have been through its shadow know what 
such crushing sorrow means. 

To you all I send my dearest love, and may God's richest bles- 
sing rest upon your deliberations and our cause. 

Three events of great moment have occurred to us of the Con- 
federacy within the last twelve months. The death of Mrs. Jeffer- 
son Davis, the celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of the 
birth of Robt. E. Lee, and the unveiling of the Monument to our 
beloved Confederate President, Jefferson Davis. 

When Mrs. Davis died I wrote to Mrs. Hayes in the name o! 
the N. C. Daughters of the U. D. C. expressing our deep sympathy 
lor her great loss. The death of the wife of our great leader means 
another link broken in the chain of the past. We sent a wreath of 
Mowers to lay upon her grave. 

"Warm summer sun shine kindly here, 

Warm summer winds blow softly here, 

Green sod above lie light, lie light, 

Good ni^ht dear Heart, good night, good night." 



18 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

A notice was sent to every chapter in the State to observe with 
suitable exercises the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of 
Robt. E. Lee. Many replies were received, telling how beautiful 
there services were. After all, we love him belt, this "Foe without 
hate, friend without reproach, Christian without hypocrasy, man 
without guile." Hill calls him "A Caesar without his ambition, a 
Frederick without his tyranny, a Napoleon without his selfishness, 
a Washington without his reward." He will live forever within 
our hearts and our children's children will forever revere the 
name of Robt. E. Lee. 

When the Jefferson Davis Monument was unveiled, our treas- 
ury was very low, having juit paid for our Minutes and other 
necessary expenditures. We issued a call to every chapter asking 
a small contribution in order to se.id a suitable floral design for the 
N. C. Division, U. D. C. Replies flowed in and we sent a very 
handsome one and had money left over. 

Soon after entering upon my year's work I wrote to every local 
President for the names of some of the best workers. From these 
names I selected two from each chapter and formed the first two 
committees. First the Soldiers' Home Committee, for the Old 
Soldiers must ever be first with us, and then a Committee on Edu- 
cation. 

Scattered over our beloved South are the descendants of our 
Confederate Soldiers, who are denied the privileges of an educa- 
tion. Often among the poorer classes through sheer neglect, the 
children are growing up uneducated and untrained. Some settle- 
ment workers in one of our towns have found that numbers of the 
workers in the cotton mills are descendants of Confederate Sol- 
diers. Here is where our great work lies. What is dearer to us 
than the memories of our Old South? Our hopes of the New? 
This work has been put into the hands of two splendid women, 
Mrs. B. W. Hatcher and Mrs. J. G. Broduax. Opportunities will be 
given deserving girls. Mrs. Hatcher has gotten out a circular to be 
sent through the rural districts striving to make general the interest. 
Mrs. Brodnax is working to establish scholarships. I commend this 
cause to you. It should be dear to our hearts. First the Old Sol- 
dier, to make comfortable in his declining years, and then to work 
that his descendants, whom Tillman calls the "seed-corn," shall be 
educated to make great men and fine women. That the sons and 
daughters of the New South shall be worthy of those of the Old. 

Mrs. Wm. H. Overman received short notice in regard to the 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 19 

change of Crosses of Honor rules, but she worked both night and 
day so as to get in as many Crosses as possible and prevent the Old 
Soldiers from being disappointed. 

Mrs. O. W. Blacknall notified every chapter president of Mrs. 
Overman's appointment, and also each member of every committee 
was notified. 

The following chapters have been chartered during the year. 

Clayton Chapter, Clayton; Emeline J. Pigott Chapter, Morehead; 
The Holt-Sanders Chapter, Smithfield; Mary Lee Chapter, Painter. 
Jackson Co; Frank M. Parker Chapter, Enfield. Also papers and 
instructions are out for forming chapters at Battleboro and Rock- 
ingham. The following children's chapters have been reported; one 
at Greensboro, one at Durham and one at Tarboro,Wadesboro, Little- 
ton, Selma, Windsor and Albemarle. 

The saying that "A land without monuments it a land without 
memories" is no longer true of North Carolina, and our hearts are 
gladdened that so many chapters have sent their money lor the 
Arch; also to hear from Mrs. H. A. London and Mrs. F. M. Williams 
of the recent unveiling of Confederate Monuments at Pittsboro and 
Newton. The plans for the proposed Monument to Henry L. 
Wyatt seems to be well under way and should receive our support. 

The gathering of Confederate History should be of great im- 
portance to us all. If each of the three thousand and more women 
belonging to the North Carolina Division felt it her duty to pre- 
serve important matter bearing upon this subject what a rich treas- 
ury we could hand down to coming posterity. Several of our old 
soldiers have either written their war record or paid me a visit and 
related their experiences, so that later on I might write them out. 
1 also have a valuable newspaper article given by Col. Geo. T. 
Peers in whose yard the Confederates stacked their arms at Appo- 
mattox, and I have a number of other interesting articles promised 
by such men as Gov. Jarvis, Maj. Guthrie, Col. Burgwyn and 
others. Let the good work go on. 

In conclusion, let me thank my fellow officers and the heads 
and members of all committees for their faithful and efficient work. 
I have striven to do my full duty in this labor of love and I know 
they have. I appreciate the many kind and loving letters received 
and the hearty co-ops ration and support always given me. I know 
that my successors, like my predecessors will be women oi strength 
and ability. 

We are splendidly organized and our work will go forward 



20 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

triumphantly. There is no fear of falling back. Again assuring you 
of my love for and appreciation of you and the sacred cause you 
represent. 

Faithfully yours 

Lucy Closs Parker. 



The Recording Secretary's report was next read 
and approved 

RECORDING SECRETARY'S REPORT. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

The Recording Secretary's book for the North Carolina Divi- 
sion, U. D. C, shows registered 84 U. D. C Chapters and 20 child- 
ren's chapters. During the past year five new ones have been en- 
rolled in the division, viz: High Point Chapter, High Point 
Emeline J. Pigott Chapter, Morejiead; Edwin Sanders and E. J. 
Holt chapter at Smithfield; Mar/ Lee Chapter at Painter and Frank 
M. Parker Chapter at Enfield. The first named of these had applied 
for charter before the last convention, but did not get it until after- 
wards. Clayton, Battleboro and Rockingham have also been sent 
application blanks, but I have b3en unable to obtain any infor- 
mation regarding them. 

A great interest aeems to have been awakened in the children of 
the state as evinced by the number of chapters formed a nong them, 
Wadesboro, Durham, Tarboro, Littleton, Greensboro, Selma and 
Windsor having all organized. 

I have sent out to old and new chapters 1060 application blanks 
for Daughters and 550 for the children. Have sold one child's certi- 
ficate to Wadesboro, 35 to Gastonia and 10 to Washington. Have 
written 510 letters and 258 postal cards, trying to reply promptly 
to any and all letters received. 

To the Daughters of the division I owe many thanks for the 
promptness with which they complied with requests for data and 
copy necessary to get up the minutes of 1906. This promptness on 
their part enabled me to place in the hands of the chapters the 
minutes of the Durham Convention as early as the first of February, 
instead of later in the spring. 

For all kind consideration shown and while in office I feel 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 21 

indeed most greatful to the noblest of women, the North Carolina 
Daughters of the Confederacy. 

Respectfully submitted. 

Fannie Ransom Williams. 



The Treasurer's report was listened to with very

The Recorder of Crosses next gave an account of 
the work done b\ her in this new office, created by the 
General Convention since our last meeting, and her 
report was approved as read. 

report of the recorder of crosses. 



Madam President, State Officers and Daughters of the Confed- 
eracy in Convention Assembled: 

I have the distinction of appearing before this honorable body 
of patriotic and loyal women, as Recorder of the Cross of Honor, 
ior North Carolina. 

As you know this is a new office created by the General Con- 
vention at Gulfport, November, 1906, one month after our State 
Convention. 

I therefore hold this office by virtue of appointment, by our 
honored State President, Mrs. W. S. Parker. It was late in Decem- 
ber when the office was given me, and I went to work with zeal and 
earnestness to accomplish much for our chapters in the 
Cross of Honor. I soon found it was not smooth sailing, but 
that mountain difficulty, intricacy, and detail confronted me on 
every side. My first order was from Louisburg, and with haste and 
delight I got the papers in order and forwarded to Custodian in 
Savannah and in the time it took to go to Savannah and return the 
package was in my hands again, marked "out of order," and all had 
to be returned to Louisburg to be overhauled, recopied and sent to 
Custodian. It was such a disappointment personally, I was dis- 
couraged. But nothing daunted I pressed forward, kept at work, 
learning detail, overcoming intricacy and storming mountain dim-

culty, till today I stand before you to report my year's work. In 
the success and triumph of what has been accomplished, I have 
forgotten chagrin, reproof, disappointment, and all its rough places. 
How well it is we always remember the beauty of the roses, and 
where they bloomed, and forget how the thorns pierced. During 
the year I have ordered Crosses for the following chapters, and the 
number of Crosses bestowed :

United Daughters of the Confederacy 41 

The office is a new department in the work, and its historical 
record will last long after the work of the Daughters of the Con- 
federacy is finished. When the last veteran shall have passed away, 
there is the office and the work that willabide.and its record looked 
over by succeeding generations. Here will be found your grand- 
children, great-grand-children and great-great-grand-children's title 
to the Daughters of the Confederacy, for here in this register 
is the name, rank, company and command, and service that was 
given to that war when the flower of Southern manhood fought for 
homes and honor, a record of the deathless dead — a record that this 
glorious Southland is proud of and that will be Venerated by suc- 
ceeding generations. It is an office that should rotate with ourCon- 
vention, for each year it will be a pride to record the names of the 
soldiers who fought with Lee and Jackson. It is an honor and dis- 
tinction to hold such an office. 

The expense attached to its work is considerable. "The stamp 
account" is upon us, postage as follows :

This seems quite a sum to be paid out in postage and express 
for one office. But when you consider the number of packages to 
be forwarded, returned and forwarded again it mounts up rapidly. 
I have tried in every way to reduce postage but have failed. I 
have even been ridiculed by one chapter on the subject of econo- 
my in postage, but I had a regard for its drain on the State trea- 
sury. The Register was $9.50, and was ordered from Walker, Evans 
and Cogswell, of Charleston, S. C. This was endorsed by President 
Parker. Mr. Parker, who is a fine business man, advised me where 
to order, and also what the price of it would be. I looked at 
Register in one of the up-to-date banks, and got the size I wanted. 
The price was $12.00. A reduction, or discount for the U. D. C. was 
gotten, and the price paid was $9.50. 

Now, Daughters of the Confederacy, this is the report of your 
year's work in theCross of Honor from the new office of Recorder of 
Crosses. It is simply plain facts, if there are questions to ask about 
the work and office, I will be glad to answer. With high personal 
regard for all and with great love and interest for the work, I am 
Yours faithfully, 

Mrs. WiLLiAM H. Overman, 
Recorder of Crosses of Honor for North Carolina. 

I will also say for my successor in office that the work and de- 
tail is trying and heavy, and that she should be allowed a paid as- 
sistant when the work crowds in. There is such a rush to get or- 
ders off.and frequently somuch to be copied, to save delay,that it is 
necessary to have help. The work on the Register requires two, 
one to call out and the other to record. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 43 

The Chairman of the Transportation Committee 
briefly stated that no special rates to the convention 
could be obtained, as the authorities thought the 2 1-2 
cent rate sufficiently low. 

The Chairman of the Constitution and By-Laws 
Committee met, read the Amendments as they had been 
sent out to the chapters, after which they were voted 
on and discussed separately. 

AMENDMENTS OF CONSTITUTION, 

ARTICLE 4. 

To amend the sentence "No person can nominate another for 
office unless she knows the nominee will serve if elected" by add- 
ing, "and is present at the Convention, except when she already 
holds office and is detained by sickness or other cause to be de- 
cided by the executive committee." 

Also change "The term of office to expire December 1st follow- 
ing," so as to read "the term of office to expire the day after the Con- 
vention." 

BY-LAWS. 

No. 5. Change last clause from "Two weeks prior to Annual 
Convention" to read "so as to be in their hands first day of An- 
nual Convention." 

No. 6. Amend instead of "Two weeks to Annual Conven- 
tion," so as to read "the 'first day of Annual Convention." 



The first Amendment to the Constitution called 
forth quite a lively discussion, and the vote by chap- 
ters being demanded, it was taken with the folio * ing 
results: Ninety voting for and twenty-two against. 
Pence the amendment cairied. The others were all 
passed by an aye and nay vote. When the reports of 
the Eastern and Western Soldiers Home Committees 
were called for their Chairmen requested that these

reports be incorporated in that of the Chairman of the 
Soldiers Home Purchasing Committee, which was done, 
and Mrs. R. H. Brooks read all these reports, which 
were approved.

At the close of these reports Mrs. M. S. Willard 
made the following motion, which was unanimously 
passed: 



48 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

I wish to particularly mention the faithfulness and zeal of Mrs. 
Brooks, the Secretary of the Committee and matron of the Home. 
She is untiring in her efforts for the comfort and care of the inmates 
of the home, and I feel we are to be congratulated in having in this 
position one so capable and interested. 

On its being - stated that a nurse was greatly need- 
ed in the hospital of the Soldiers Home to attend to the 
many sick and helpless veterans, and after having the 
matters most ably presented to the Convention by sev- 
eral ladies, it was decided by vote that the Daughters 
place a nurse at the home to aid Mrs. Brooks in her 
other duties, this nurse to be paid out of the funds sent 
by the various chapters for the Soldiers Home work. 

Four o'clock having arrived, the convention ad- 
journed for the purpose of allowing the delegates to 
enjoy a drive over the city. 



SECOND DAY.— MORNING SESSION. 

The convention was opened by prayer by the Rev. 
Milton Clarxe, after which the ladies enjoyed some de- 
lghtful singing by Miss Moore, of High Point. 

The regular business of the morning was begun by 
reading of the minutes of the day before, which were 
approved without correction, after which the regular 
routine of report reading was continued. 

Messages of love and regrets of their absence 
were sent to Mrs. Stonewall Jackson, Mrs. W. M. Pars- 
ley, and Miss Rebecca Cameron. 

In the absence of Miss Cameron, the Historian's 
report was read by the Recording Secretary and was 
approved. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 49 
report of the historian of the n. c. div. u. d. c. 



Madam President and Daughters : 

I begin my fourth annual report with a greater feeling of hope 
for the future than I have ever had; for the vital importance of 
securing historical material from the lips of the men who did the 
work, seems to be beginning to be realized by some of our chapters 
as never before, and I have had several reports, and more letters 
that tell well for the spirit of the chapters. 

Gastonia reports sixteen papers sent to the Secretary of State's 
office. Dorsey Pender chapter reports sending six; the 
Reidsville chapter speaks of sending papei's but gave no number; 
Selma likewise, this chapter, the Henry L. Wyatt, is doing most ex- 
cellent work in studying the history of the war, and training their 
Children's chapter. Teach the children; they are the standard- 
bearers of the future. To them we must commit the custody of the 
Stars and Bars in the years to come; and if they are taught as they 
should, they will be as quick to defend it as an Irish peasant of to- 
day is to defend the Irish at the battle of the Boyne Water. 

My official work has been less fruitful in results than I had 
hoped. I wrote many letters and had valuable assistance from all 
the members of my committee in our efforts to establish a Depart- 
ment of Archives and History, and have a suitable fire-proof build- 
ing erected. 

Gov. Glenn was pledged to support the bill — even writing a 
special message if necessary. Our Senator had drawn up the bill, 
and it was an admirable one, covering the whole scope of such a 
department. Others of the Committee had pledges from their mem- 
bers. But, alas, the bill was never introduced; the railroads had a 
monopoly of the floor, and side tracked, or wrecked everything 
else. It is therefore still before us as work to be done, and I beg 
all the chapters to use their collective and personal influence with 
the members of the next General Assembly to establish this most 
important department. 

As a member of the Historical Committee I wrote to all the 
Chapter Historians assigned to me, but received replies from only 
five of them. Those five, however, wrote very satisfactory letters. 
I have written many letters and replied to all that I received; but I 
have not done one tithe of what I would have done had my strength 
equalled my desire. 



50 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

In conclusion I can only repeat what I have said each suc- 
cessive year that I have had the honor to address you, and empha- 
size it more and more as the flight of years makes more apparent 
the necessity. The proportion of deaths amoung the Veterans this 
year has been appalling. They are fast following their great Lead- 
ers down the star-strown pathway whence tiey will never return; 
then hasten to secure from them their stories of the war, while yet 
they can speak. When once the seal of Death's silence is set upon 
their lips we will have forever lost what they could tell. 

Taps will blow all too soon for the wavering line that is left, 
and soon there will be none left who can say, "My Command," or 
"We are in action.'' The personal element will be forever lost. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Rebecca Cameron. 
Hillsboro, N. C, Oct. 1, 1907. 



The Assistant Historian's report was next read 
and approved. 

REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT HISTORIAN. 

Madam President, Daughters of the Confederacy : 

Ladies and Gentlemen : I come with happy greeting. Let me 
assure you that nothing could give me more pleasure tl^an being 
with you on this grand patriotic occasion and aiding the true wom- 
en of the South in paying honor to our heroic dead — those brave 
men who fought for principle and who died in the defense of right, 
of home, of a dear but "lost cause." 

"Let laurels, drenched in Parnassian dews, 
Reward his memory, dear to every muse, 
Who with a courage of unshaken root, 
In honor's field advancing a firm foot, 
Plants it upon the line that justice draws 
And will prevail or perish in the Cause." 
Daughters of the Confederacy, we are banded together for a 
great purpose, and God is with us. Our dark past is spanned with 
a rainbow of light, and the Goddess of Hope beckons us onward. 

Our dear Sunny South, that was desolated with a fratricidal 
war, is blossoming again as the rose, and we see beauty and pros- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 51 

perity on all sides. Fate is working out its own problem. Truth 
and right are mighty and will prevail. 

We are gathering the laurels that belong to our dead and twi- 
ning into beautiful wreaths to place on their graves — and we are 
collecting historical facts and great deeds of our beloved heroes, 
which will crystalize into gems of purest lustre. 

Yes, I have collected a good deal of the written and unwritten 
history of our State, and many papers have been sent me from dif- 
ferent chapters. Let every Daughter continue to aid us in this good 
work. 

I, as one of your historians, heartily endorse the movement of 
the Henry L. Wyatt chapter of Selma, to place a monument or foun- 
tain in Raleigh, the capital of our State, in honor of that brave sol- 
dier, the first life offered for Southern liberty, and bespeak the sup- 
port of the chapters throughout the State. 

"We care not whence they came, 

Dear in their lifeless clay, 
Whether unknown or known to fame 

Their cause and country still the same, 
They died — and wore the gray." 

I was chairman of the Macon and Vance Committee and work- 
ed very hard to have the bill passed, by securing signatures of men 
and women of Henderson and the vicinity asking it, and writing to 
gentlemen in the Senate and legislature asking their influence. 

It was asked at the State Convention last year that we Daugh- 
ters of the Confederacy endorse, and also aid the King's Daughters, 
in establishing a reformatory in the State for youthful criminals. I 
also secured signatures and sent to the Legislature for this. 

But, my dear friends and co-workers, I was disappointed in not 
getting Confederate relics for the Jamestown Exposition. As as- 
sistant Historian, I could not take the liberty of going to the State 
officials in Raleigh and arranging relative to it, as our leading offi- 
cer in the Daughters of the American Revolution did. I urged you 
all, at the last Convention, to send relics, and asked the Durham 
chapter to send a picture of the Bennett House, where Gen. Joseph 
E, Johnston surrendered, and a portrait of Gen. Julian S. Carr, a 
Confederate hero, and a man always active in good works in the 
State. He is the Confederate Veteran's best friend. 

But, ladies, it matters little. A great many who attended the 
Exposition attended the Jefferson Davis monument unveiling. I 



52 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

met them and visited our Confederate Museum at Richmond, Va. 
Richmond was almost as near as Jamestown Island, where three 
Colonial Dames restored the old Colonial church and the Daugh- 
ters of the American Revolution have a building. I think it takes 
longer to go to Jamestown Island. « 

There are many tributes to Southern valor at the Jamestown 
Exposition. Lee parade will endure as long as time lasts — another 
monument to our great military chieftain. Beauvoir, a copy of the 
home of Jefferson Davis, which belonged to the Virginia Division 
of the Daughters of the Confederacy, was very inviting and was 
visited by hundreds daily The Merrimac and the Monitor, a kind 
of Marine Cyclorama, was a favorite resort and all learned of South- 
ern valor, and the revolution in naval ironclads or war vessels, for 
which the world is indebted to the Confederate soldier. There are 
also on the Warpath Cycloramas of the battles ol Gettysburg and 

Manassas. 

And nobody present North Carolina Day will ever forget our great 
Governor's speech, or the many brave deeds of North Carolina that 
he recounted, showing the superb courage of the Confederate sol- 
dier. The auditorium was packed with eager listeners from North, 
South. East and West, and the true and interesting story that caused 
so much applause will be taken to every quarter of the globe. 

I once heard the gifted and beloved Dr. Mclver, of this city, 
say that with Lee and Jackson as our leaders, we need not fear for 
the future. And I echo his words. 

Our great military chieftain, Gen. Robert E. Lee, stands in the 
Hall of Fame in New York city. No "Lost Cause'' ever before had 
so much glory. All nations have acknowledged our Lee the greatest 
genius of battle in the war between the States. 

And now, dear Daughters and co-workers, I should like to say 
to you that this convention should be a regular jubilee with us. 
Our greatest works have been accomplished. We have reared that 
magnificent monument to Jefferson Davis in Richmond, Va., the 
Capital of the Confederacy, to proclaim to future generations how 
we honored our great Chieftain and the cause for which so many 
lives were given. Each of you aided in this great work. 

A beautiful monument we have erected also to Winnie Davis, 
the Daughter of the Confederacy. This is in the Richmond ceme- 
tery, Hollywood, a beautiful angel in marble leaning over with a 
wreath, which she is placing over her grave. 

And Daughters of North Carolina, our Vance is to occupy a 



United Daughters op the Confederacy 53 

niche in the National Statuary Hall at Washington, D. C. By united 
effort we have won the consent of the North Carolina Legislature 
and our great Confederate hero will be among the immortals. And 
again, "my dear, sweet ladies, "(as the Governor of North Carolina 
says to our faithful workers in these patriotic organizations) we 
must continue to collect the history of Confederate men and 
women. 

And before bidding you good bye, I would say educate Con- 
federate children. Let your theme be patriotic education. 

I stand ready to aid in the great and good work before us. 
Madam President, I am with you heart and hand. 
Respectfully submitted. 

Mrs. W. O. Shannon. 



The Jefferson Davis Monument report was then 
read and at its close Mrs. J. P. Allison was given a 
rising vote of thanks for her faithful and most efficient 
work as Chairman of this Committee, and to her un- 
tiring efforts is due the fact that North Carolina con- 
tributed the third largest amount to the monument. 

REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF THE JEFFERSON DAVIS ASSO- 
CIATION U. D. C. FOR NORTH CAROLINA, 



The Jefferson Davis monument is finished, and North Carolina 
has no cause in any part to be ashamed of the part she took in it. 
She wrought well, and goes down gloriously in history — in her 
rightful place — the front line — in faithful and successful endeavor, 
lor this cause so dear to every loyal Southern heart. 

It was the proudest day of my life, the 3rd of June last, when 
during the most notable of Confederate reunions, the veil was lifted 
from the magnificent statue of President Jefferson Davis, the only 
President of the Confederate States of America, amid booming of 
cannon and deafning cheers of the vast concourse of enthusiastic 
Veterans and devoted Southerners. 

The statue was unveiled by the graceful and gracious daughter 
of our beloved chieftain and two handsome sons. 

It was a brilliant scene; the splendid colonade wreathed with 
beautiful flowers from every State, but many of you were present 



54 Minutes op Eleventh Annual Convention 

and the papers have long ago given such full accounts of it all, I 
shall not attempt any further description of the occasion, for I feel 
it is not in ray power. 

The last meeting of the Jefferson Davis Monument Association 
was held the night of June 3rd. We had turned over to the city of 
Richmond a beautiful and completed work, our mission was ended 
— as an organization we could transact no further business, so we 
reluctantly disbanded, but formed ourselves into a fraternity, these 
representative women from every Southern State, together with 
New York and Ohio, and should one of us die, her place could not 
be filled but ever remain vacant. 

In November when the General Convention meets in the city 
of Norfolk, the U. D. C. will formally accept the monument. 

Before closing my last report of the Jefferson Davis Monument 
work I wish to thank the North Carolina Division with all my 
heart for appointing me without my knowledge to the high position 
of chairman of the Jefferson Davis Monument commitee. I feel it 
not only an honor, but a sweet privilege to have labored as Direc- 
tor in so great and glorious a cause. 

Since my last report I have receipted for and turned over to 
Mrs. Taylor, our Treasurer, $9.00, the last of other generous contri- 
butions of the Thomas Ruffin chapter, Goldsboro. Georgia and North 
Carolina have at times been neck and neck in contributions 
to this fund and Mrs. Taylor told me the same mail which brought 
the last contributions from North Carolina brought also one from 
Georgia, the same amount, $9. 00. I could not at that time bring myself 
to ask which came in ahead; I felt that all had done their very best' 
and I believe North Carolina is satisfied. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. John P. AllIson. 



The Hon. George Davis Monument committee had 
no report read at the convention, but it has since been 
handed in and is here incorporated. 

GEO. DAVIS MONUMENT REPORT. 



Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy : 

I had hoped that my urgent, and, I intended it to be, earnest, 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 55 

appeal at the last Convention in behalf of the erection of a suitable 
monument to the Hon. George Davis, Attorney General of the Con- 
federate States, and a warm personal friend of our Martyr President, 
would have met with as earnest a response from the whole State. 
Notwithstanding, all the pledges made at that time, only few have 
been redeemed. 

The A. M. Waddell chapter, of Kinston, sent their promised $5. 
The Henry Wyatt chapter, of Selma, $1; the Thomas Ruffin chapter 
of Goldsboro, their $5; the Red Springs chapter, of Red Springs, 
sent a generous contribution of $25.00, not having pledged for any 
stated amount. That is the largest contribution ever made through 
the State committee, most generous, inasmuch as .at this time last 
year they hadn't finished paying for the County Monument to their 
Confederate Dead. Through Miss Sue Collier, General Julian S. 
Carr sent a donation of $10.00, making in all $46.00 to add to the 
amount in bank to the State's credit, $36.00 only, part of it being re- 
deemed pledges. And yet we number seventy-five, or more,chapters 
within our State. It is true that a fair percentage of the chapters 
responded to Mrs. Wm. Parsley as Chairman of the committee of 
the Cape Fear chapter of Wilmington, which was appointed previous 
to that by the State, yet I think there are still many unfulfilled 
promises made to her,which I believe she would gladly have turned 
over to the State committee. 

As stated in my other two reports, I appealed to every State 
Division in existence to put it before their Chapters, and with what 
little success has already been stated. So at the last Convention I 
told your body it was evident that it would have to be the work of 
the State, hoping we had sufficient State pride to prevent such an 
undertaking from failing. As the State recognized his ability dur- 
ing his life, and was proud that one of her sons should have been ap- 
pointed a member of the President's Cabinet, and proud to claim 
him as a true son of the "Old North State," surely we, the Daugh- 
ters oi the Confederacy might honor his name in death, and leave 
as we are doing for other eminent North Carolinians, something to 
show to coming generations what we had just cause to be proud of 
during his well-spent life. The effects of severe illness following 
closely after the last Convention has unfitted me for doing much 
writing during the past year, but being now improved in health, 
will endeavor to make another effort to interest the other States, 
before whoever is appointed in my place comes into it. Surely all 
of the Confederate States should be glad to take advantage of the 



56 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

privilege, which is theirs, of assisting in this duty of grateful remem- 
brance. Of the committee appointed to assist me, I have heard 
from Mrs. Harvey, of Kinston, and Mrs. Carr, through the General, 
who reported poor health of his wife, but signified his willingness 
to render any assistance which he could, and has done so in sending 
the $10.00 already mentioned. At present the one thing to be done 
is to interest all with whom they are thrown in contact in con- 
tributing to this common cause. I hope they will be able to report 
some success in that line at the coming Convention. 

Circumstances, which I deeply regret, prevent my being present 
with you on this occasion, although appointed a delegate from my 
own chapter, but as so little has been accomplished by my appeal 
in person last year and also that of the retiring President, my ina- 
bility to be present will probably be no loss to the cause. I shall 
be sorry to miss the group of cheerful faces which it was such a 
pleasure to look upon last year, and the pleasant intercourse with 
those so rarely me^ except on such occasions, though my absence 
may not even be noted. 

Hoping that it may be a harmonious meeting, as it always has 
been, and that in my absence, some others may handle the cause so 
near my heart — that of the Hon. George Davis Monument, and trust- 
ing that at some future day, I may again meet those whom I have so 
pleasantly known at our Conventions, I am 

Yours truly, 

Hettie S. James, 
Chairman State Committee. 



Instead of this above report Mrs. Cuthbert Mar- 
tin read an appeal for aid in building this monument, 
and many pledges of money towards this work were 
given by the chapters. 

APPEAL FOR GEO. DAVIS MONUMENT. 

Cape Fear Chapter sends greeting, and asks that the North 
Carolina Daughters of the Confederacy in Convention assem- 
bled, listen to the following: 

Early in 1861, when rumors of war rumbled like distant thun- 
der, when all things political were in a seething condition, and 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 57 

men looked at each other questioning who was true, and who was 
false to his native land and his mother State, a man was chosen 
from among us by North Carolina, to attend a "Peace Conference'," 
held in Hampton Roads, where those of the South met those of the 
North for discussion of pending difficulties, with a view to peace- 
ful settlement, if possible. 

This man was elected not only for his known ability, his tact 
in dealing with men, and for his keen insight and profound judg- 
ment, but for his unquestioned integrity, his devotion to right, his 
faithfulness to duty, and his loyalty to his own South land. 

The confidence felt in him and in his rectitude and judgment 
was shown, when, on his return he was met by a great concourse of 
people of varying shades of opinion and varying de- 
grees of feeling, who trusting in him implicitly heard his statements 
and received his verdict there could be no honorable peace, with 
bowed heads, and a silence which was eloquent. 

Later this man was made a member of the Cabinet of the Con- 
federate State;. He was then at the height of success in practice 
at the bar of North Carolina, but relinquished all, gave up his 
home, left with friends his family, to which he was devoted, and 
gave four of the best years of his life, and his best abilities, and 
they were exceptional, to the service of the Southern Confederacy. 
In the closing yeir of the war he was made Attorney General. He 
was always in close friendship with President Davis, and shared 
with him the dangers and disasters of the last days of the struggle, 
returning to his native place homeless and penniless, to gather in 
his later years what consolation he could in the love and devotion 
of his own people, sharing with them in sympathetic comradeship 
the hardships and distresses of the black and bitter days of recon- 
struction. 

To the last day of his life, as true as steel, faithful to his con- 
victions of right, loyal to his State and the South — always the 
Hon. George Davis. 

Cape Fear chapted feels that in asking the support and co-op- 
eration of all the North Carolina chapters in establishing a 
Memorial of Mr. Davis, they are presenting to them the opportu- 
nity of serving the State by preserving the memory of this distin- 
guished Statesman, of doing themselves honor by honoring this 
noble North Carolinian, of beautifying posterity by upholding to 
them this model of manly virtues and devoted patriotism. 



58 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

The Memorial Arch Committee report was then 
called, and Mrs. Moffitt stated that one of the small 
gate-ways had been donated to the Daughters through 
Prof. Pratt, of Chapel Hill, by the Balfour Granite Co. 
of Salisbury. This gift was accepted with many 
thanks. There was a great deal of discussion regard- 
ing this Arch and after several motions and amended 
amendments to motions the whole matter was tabled 
until the next Convention, when a blue print is to be 
shown, setting forth where the chapter stones bearing 
the chapter names will appear. 

REPORT OF MEMORIAL ARCH COMMITTEE. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy : 

As Chairman of the Memorial Arch Committee, I am pleased to 
report the progress of this work undertaken by the "United Daugh- 
ters" of North Carolina, that of erecting a Memorial Arch and Gate- 
way to the Confederate cemetery in Raleigh, to do honor not only 
to the thousand dead soldiers resting within its limits, but to 
stand as a memorial of the devotion and untiring zeal of the 
Daughters of the Confederacy of North Carolina to the heroes of 
their own State, and indeed, of the Solid South, for within this sa- 
cred place every Southern State has its representatives. 

As this monument is one in which every member of the organ- 
ization will hold an interest, a resume of the work so far is sub- 
mitted. 

It will be recalled that the suggestion to thus honor the dead 
was made at the Asheville Convention of 1903, and offered as a mat- 
ter for consideration until the next Convention. 

The matter was again brought before the Convention of 1904 
at Fayetteville and favorably received, and a resolution passed to 
erect a handsome gate of stone in form of arch, and that each 
chapter donate a stone suitably subscribed, or twenty dollars in 
money. 

In 1905 the Convention met in Morganton, at this, the Chair- 
man was unable to attend on account of illness, but sent in her re- 
port that a number of chapters were responding, and that the Trea- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 



59 



surer would make report of amount collected up to that date; and 
she also made request that the Convention rescind the resolution 
made the former year to furnish stones, she having consulted ex- 
perts on stone work, who said it would be impracticable to build- 
of different kinds of stone on account of the disintegrating qualities 
of some varieties. This was readily granted. She also reported that 
proper application had been made to the Cemetery authorities to 
erect the memorial, which was cheerfully granted. 

The plans for the work and ways and means having been ar- 
ranged the Committee was appointed consisting of each president 
of every chapter in the State, and Mrs. E. E. Moffitt, of Raleigh, 
permanent Chairman. 

It was suggested that the Committee given five years in which 
to complete the work. 

At the Convention of 1906, which met in Durham, the Chair- 
man again was pleased to report favorable progress. The chapters 
were responding most cheerfully and 'satisfactorily, over two hun- 
dred dollars having been paid to the treasurer. 

To-day our Treasurer reports seven hundred and sixty dollars, 
and thirty-eight chapters heard from. This amount is at interest 
and kept entirely separate from the general fund. 

The Chairman is more than delighted to say that the Dau»hters 
have been presented with a handsome stone pedestrian gateway and 
eighteen feet of balustrade by Dr. Joseph Hyde Pratt, State Geolo- 
gist and by the Balfour Granite Company of Salisbury, N. C This 
gift formed part of the mineral exhibit at the Jamestown Exposition 
and is worth several hundred dollars 

The hope of the Chairman is to secure a duplicate pedestrian 
Gate Way. and these are to flank the Central Arch, which is to be 
built strictly by the "Daughters." The position that the gate will 
occupy is most commanding; on the apex of Cemetery hill, directly 
on a street running parallel with it, and on another street running 
directly towards it ending at the gate. The street car line is one 
block opposite, thus affording strangers to the city easy means of 
seeing the memorial and of visiting this Cemetery. 

As to the cost of the structure your Chairman is not prepared to 
report, but she entertains the hope that if each chapter in the State 
contributes the amount of twenty dollars that a sufficient sum 
will be raised to complete the Central Arch and perhaps aid in the 
incidental expenses that will of necessity be incurred.The first idea 
of one large gate-way has developed into three, by reason of the 



60 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

gift of one pedestrian entrance, but it is presiimed that this devel- 
opment will not cause the "Daughters" a greater outlay than at first 
anticipated. 

A blue print of this structure, as it will appear when completed, 
will be submitted to the next Convention. In the mean time the 
Arch-way and balustrade must be removed from Jamestown Expo- 
sition to Ralegh which your Chairman will endeavor to have done 
at the least coit possible. 

For the enlightenment of our organization I append a report from 
the Ladies' Memorial Association of Wake county, which owns this 
Cemetery, and through which it has been kept in order for forty 
years. The following is quoted from the report made in 1904. by 
Mrs. Garland Jones, the late and lamented President of this Associa- 
tion, which will be of great interest, showing how many of our 
Southern soldiers we will so gladly honor: 

"We have in our Cemetery handsome and imposing 
monuments to the following brave and distinguished men : 
Gen. George B. Anderson, Col. Harry Burgwyn, Col. Turner 
McLoud, Col. Randolph Shotwell and Capt. W. C. Stronach. 
In 1884 one hundred and seven Confederate dead were re- 
moved from the National Cemetery at Arlington, and with 
all the solemnity befitting the occasion were laid to rest in 
their own native soil. 

"At the rate of one per month the Veterans are slowly 
and one by one answering the last roll call from our Sol- 
dier's Home, near the city, are transferred to our "City of 
the Dead," which keep the number ever increasing. We 
now number about 1000 graves of as brave men as ever drew 
sword for their country. Lying side side with our North 
Carolina dead are forty-six South Carolinians, forty-four 
Georgians, eight Alabamians.eight Mississippians,fourVirgm- 
ians, two Floridians, two Tenuesseeans, one Texan, one 
Lousianian, one Arkansian, two Confederate State Marines 
and one hundred and six unknown dead, and each State is 
allotted to it a certain portion. Granite head stones are at 
the head of each grave, and each numbered, and a record 
kept of the same for future reference." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. E. E. Mqffitt, 
Chairman Memorial Arch Com. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 61 

A cordial invitation to lunch at one o'clock as the 
guests of the Guilford chapter was then tendered and 
gratefully accepted. An invitation to attend a recep- 
tion at the State Normal at 4 o'clock on Friday af- 
ternoon was also accepted with many thanks, after 
which the morning session was brought to a close. 



SECOND DAY — afternoon session. 

The first business immediately on re-assembling in 
the afternoon was the election of officers for the 
coming year. Mrs. W S. Parker, the State President, 
would have been re-elected by acclamation, but she 
positively refused to allow her name to be presented. 

Nominations being declared in order and Mrs. I. 
W. Faison's name being presented for the Presidency, 
she called Mrs. M. H. Jones to the chair, and Mrs. 
Jones gracefully presided during the election, which 
resulted as follows : 

President, Mrs. I. W. Faison, Charlotte. 

First Vice-President, Mrs. R. F. Dalton, Greens- 
boro. 

Second Vice-Pres., Mrs. M. S. Willard, Wilming- 
ton. 

Third Vice-Pres., Mrs. G. P. Ervin, Morganton. 

Recording Secretary, Mrs. F. M. Williams, New- 
ton. 

Corresponding Secretary, Mrs. Gordon Finger. 
Charlotte. 

These ladies were all unanimously elected, there 
being no other nominations for the offices. 

For Treasurer there were three names before the 
Convention, Mrs. E F. Hal!, of Reidsville. Mrs. Eu 
gene Little, of Wadesboro, and Miss Alice Nelson, of 



62 Mtnutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

Greensboro. After the first ballot Mrs. Hall and Mrs. 
Little requested that their names be withdrawn in fa- 
vor of Miss Nelson, thus making her election unani- 
mous. 

Registrar Mrs. Leo. D. Heartt, of Raleigh, was 
unanimously chosen to succeed herself. 

ForHistorian the names of Miss Rebecca Cameron, 
Hillsboro, and Mrs. W. O. Shannon, Henderson, were 
placed in nomination, the Executive Committee hav- 
ing decided that Miss Cameron was detained at home 
for sufficiently good reasons. When the votes were 
counted Miss Cameron was declared elected. 

For Assistant Historian, Mrs. W. O. Shannon, of 
Henderson, and Mrs. H. De B. Wills, of Raleigh, were 
nominated, and Mrs. Shannon elected. 

Mrs. W. H. Overman, of Salisbury, was unani- 
mously chosen Recorder of Crosses for another year 
and Mrs. James Kenan, of Wallace, received the same 
hearty endorsement as Chaplain. 

At the close of the election the reading of Com- 
mittee reports was continued. There were no reports 
from the Committees of Children's chapters nor official 
organ. 

The Vance Monument report was read by Mrs. 
L. C. Moffitt and approved. 

REPORT OF THE VANCE MONUMENT CMMITTEE IN CHAR- 
LOTTE. 



I would report that the following chapters have during the 
past year contributed to the fund for the purpose of erecting a 
monument to our War Governor, Zebulon B. Vance, at his home in

Treasurer of the Charlotte Association. 

Several other chapters have promised to give to this monument 
of our well beloved Vance, and I would be glad to receive the mon- 
ey as soon as they could send it 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. I. W. Faison, 
Chairman Vance Monument Com. 



The report of Committee on North Carolina Room 
in Museum at Richmond was next read and approved. 

NORTH CAROLINA ROOM AT RICHMOND. 



Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

It gives me pleasure to report the following contributions to 
the North Carolina Room during the last year : 

1. Collected by Mrs. Staten, of Tarboro, 1 cap and epaulette, 
given by Mrs. Pruden, of Edenton. 

2. Map of Battle of Bethel in frame. 

3. Three swords. 

4. Roster Edgecombe Guards. 

5. Epaulette. 

6. From Miss Rebecca Cameron, telegram, order of Governor 
for people to assemble for protecting Richmond. 

7. Framed photograph of Cleveland County Monument. 

A portrait of Col. Tate lias been solicited and framed by his 
children for next year. 

The John Phifer Young chapter, of Concord, has sent in the 
first contribufion for the Randolph Shotwell portrait, which we will 



64 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

have ready by next Convention. 

We also have funds in hand for the Robert Ransom portrait, 
which will be presented at next Convention. 
Yours respectfully, 

Mrs. Robt. L. Ryburn, 
Chairman N. C. Room Com. 



The Randolph Shot well Monument Committee 
stated that they had decided to abandon) the idea of a 
monument, and would have a portrait of Shotwell paint- 
ed for the North Carolina Room in Richmond instead. 

The Committee on Gen. Robt. Ransom's portrait 
stated that they had not yet completed their arrange- 
ments. 

The report of the Eastern Section Educational 
Committee was next taken up and was approved as 
read. 

PEPORT OF COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION.— EASTERN SEC- 
TION. 

Just as the winter's sun was saying good bye on Christmas Eve, 
1906, I received a letter from Mrs. Parker, asking me to accept the 
office of Chairman of the Educational and Text-book Committee of 
Eastern Carolina. 

As I could not afford to refuse any appeal from our President, I 
did accept, but with grave apprehensions. The names of 41 ladies, 
representing 41 chapters in the East, accompanied my appointment. 

Our President asked me to get up some plan of work for my 
committee that would arouse educational interest, not alone with 
the chapters, but in the minds of representative men in the school 
districts, townships and counties, that a fund might be raised to aid 
in the education of bright boys and girls, (descendants of Confed- 
erate Veterans) who were unable financially to educate themselves. 

I went to work — got out a circular,giving suggestions and plans, 
both to interest the people and to raise the money. I sent a copy 
of this circular to each member of my committee, asking them to 
send a report to me, prior to this Convention, telling what they 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 65 

done, and to send or bring the money raised to the Convention. 

No reports have been received by me. However, Mrs Ashworth, 
President of Henry Wyatt chapter, Selma, accepted my circular in 
good faith, and told me that her chapter would hold an Educational 
Rally, Sept. 25, both in the interest of our work and for the Henry 
Wyatt monument, but a report of the results has not been re- 
ceived. 

I had planned to do personal work in this broad field of love 
and duty, bringing results that would count, but from January 13 
to July 1st, I had constant sickness in my home, having had four 
deaths in my family in less than one year. 

Truly, nothing but failure could be expected, yet, I do feel 
grateful for divine strength to pass under the rod, and yet live for 
needy suffering ones. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. B. W. Hatcher, 
Chairman of Com. of Education. 



In the absence of the chairman of the WesternSec- 
tion of this committee, Mrs. Brodnaxs report was 
read by the Recording Secretary, who then made a 
strong appeal to the chapters forming this com- 
mittee to send in their pledges of $10.00 towards the 
two Normal Scholarships, as the young ladies had 
started in at there work and the money should be forth 
coming to keep them their all the year. The report 
was then approved as read. 

report of the educational committee.-westrn sec- 
tion. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

I have the honor of making the following report from the Edu- 
cational Committee of the Western Section of North Carolina. 

No special work was outlined for this Committee, and as our 
highest aim was to accomplish the greatest good, with the 
least outlay of money, to pay a high tribute to the brave men who 
wore the gray, and to do something to uplift their descendents and 
to fit them for useful lives we took counsel with many who were 



66 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

deeply interested in this line of work, before coming to any de- 
cision. 

The members of this committee represent thirty-seven chap- 
ters. After careful thought, we decided to try to give a four-years 
course at the State Normal and Industrial College at Greensboro, N. 
C. to two young ladies, descendants of Veterans. They to be en- 
dorsed as elligible, by the Daughters of the Confederacy, and by 
the United Confederate Veterans, and to be capable of receiving an 
education, and prepared to enter the Normal in order to do this. I 
wrote to every member of this committee, requesting them to put 
the matter before their chapters, and secure from them, if possi- 
ble, their hearty co-operation, and a pledge to give $10.00 a year for 
four years, the first payment to be made in August for this pur- 
pose. 

I confess that I was greatly disappointed by the silence of so 
many chapters. I also requested them to send in applications for 
scholarship properly endorsed. 

I am satisfied when these unresponsive chapters realize what the 
work we have undertaken means they will be anxious to take part 
in it, and I earnestly hope my successor may carry out this plan 
most satisfactorily.achieving great results. Two young ladies, meet- 
ing all the requirements, one from Newton and one from Rutherford- 
ton have been selected, and the money paid in, has been forward- 
ed by the Treasurer to President. 

I urge the chapters that have been silent, to speak out in this 
Convention, giving no uncertain sound as to their stand in regard 
to this grand work, so auspiciously begun by the following chap- 
ters: 

Winston, Lexington, Lenoir, High Point, Shelby, Salisbury, 
Greensboro, Lincolnton, Mooresville, Newton, Gastonia, Asheboro, 
Asheville, Durham. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. J. G. Bfodnax,

The reading- of chapter reports was next taken up 
and occupied the time until adjournment at a late 
hour.

THIRD DAY. — morning session. 

The Convention was opened by the recitation of 
the Lord's Prayer in unison, after which Mrs. Foushee 
sang most sweetly to the great enjoyment of her au- 
dience. 

The report of the Arlington ■ and Wirz Monument- 
Committee, which had been postponed from the regu- 
lar order, was read by the chairman, Mrs. London, and 
at its close pledges were given for $183.00 over and 
above the amount promised by Mrs. London at Gulf- 
port Convention. This report was received as read. 

REPORTS OF ARLINGTON AND WIRZ MONUMENT COM- 
MITTEE. 



Mrs. H. A. London, of Pittsboro, chairman of the Arlington 
committee of the North Carolina division, read the following re- 
port: 

The Arlington Confederate Memorial Association of Washing- 
ton have undertaken to erect a monument in the cemetery at Ar- 
lington to our Confederate dead. The United States government 
has gathered into a section of its national cemetery at Arlington 
the bodies of all our dead Confederates that were scattered about in 
the District of Columbia. The graves of these heroes, marked with 
a marble headstone, are all ranged in circles about a common cen- 
ter, and the grass grows green above them. Graveled walks lead to 
a central mound on which is to be erected a monument that when 
erected will show to the world how we honor our Confederate 
dead. 

It is true indeed that the Confederate soldier needs no costly 
tomb to glorify his memory, since the whole Southland is his 
sepulcher, and the people for whom he laid down his life have pre- 
pared for him in their own hearts an imperishable memorial. But 
there are deep and sacred sentiments which demand a material ex- 
pression of our reverence for their memory, and our admiration for 
their self-forgetting devotion to duty. A regard for posterity 
demands it, lest the lesson of their heroism, and of the purity of 
their patriotism, be not duly impressed upon the generations that 
will come after us. Respect for the good opinion of mankind de- 



68 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

mands it that the nations of the world may know that, though our 
Confederacy fell, it fell without a stain, and though our brave men 
were conquered on the field of battle, they have achieved a name and 
a fame so pure and so illustrious that our whole country, now re- 
united, honors their memory. 

We feel, therefore, that there should be erected on Arlington 
Heights a shaft of noble portions, worthy of the spot, worthy of the 
Confederate soldier, and worthy of the people of the South. We 
would that all men in looking upon it might feel that it was a fit 
expression of the glory of the dead and of the love and reverence 
of the people for whom they died. It will speak to generations 
yet unborn of the simple lo/alty and sublime constancy of the pri- 
vate soldiers of the Confederacy, who fought without reward and 
died without distinction, for a cause that was to them the embodi- 
ment of liberty and sacred right; it will speak also for all time of 
that illustrious man, once the owner of Arlington, Robert Edward 
Lee, supreme master of the art of war, magnanimous in victory, sub- 
lime in defeat, the hero and the idol of the Southern people, who, 
in less than forty years after his surrender at Appomattox, has been 
elevated to the very pinnacle of fame, having conquered the hearts 
of the American people by the beauty and the purity of his char- 
acter. 

"That monument which we have resolved to erect at Arlington 
Heights, surrounded as it will be by the shafts and memorials that 
commemorate the valor of the soldiers of the Union, will not serve 
to perpetuate sectional feeling, or enkindle sectional strife, rather it 
will testify, by the fact that it stands there, on that spot, and amid 
such surroundings, to the reconciliation of the North and South — to 
the restoration of brotherly feeling between the men who wore 
the blue and the men who wore the gray — to the generous apprecia- 
tion of our Confederate heroes by the soldiers of the Union — and 
to the generous rivalry of the people of all the States in the task of 
building up the prosperity and happiness of the reunited repub- 
lic." 

I represented the North Carolina division at Gulfport and 

pledged for our division $100, with as much more as we could collect, 
to report at the next U. D. C, Convention at Norfolk. Cape Fear 
chapter gave $25; the Statesville chapter has given $10; Concord 
chapter, $25; Stonewall Jackson chapter, $25; Winnie Davis, $5; Bat- 
tle of Bentonville, $20; J. Phifer Young Childs chapter, $5. I would 
be glad to receive thi-ough the treasurer any other contributions 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 69 

you can give. 

REPORT OF WIRZ MONUMENT. 

At the U. D. C. Convention at Gulfport, Nov. 1906, a fund was 
started to erect a monument to Major Henry Wirz, who during the 
war between the States, had charge of the prison at Andersonville, 
Georgia. 

Immediately after the war, he was carried a prisoner to the 
North. While there he endured many indignities because of his 
supposed cruelty to his prisoners. In reality the Federal prisoners 
fared as well as our own soldiers, and it is a historical fact that 
they would not exchange prisoners with us. The officials in 1863-64 
were greatly hampered by having to feed 270,000 Federal prisoners, 
distributed through out the South, and we tendered to the United 
States authorities the whole of the 270,000 prisoners in exchange for 
our 220,000 men in their prisoners. This was at the Hampton Roads 
Conference. This proposition was rejected. The Confederate com- 
missioners then proposed that the United States government send 
physicians, medicines and food for these men in prison under prop- 
er guarantees. This was rejected. We then tendered them 40,000 
of the sick, but they would only accept 10,000, who were delivered 
to the United States transports at Savannah and Port Royal. 

This is to show that we did what we could to relieve the crowd- 
ed condition at Andersonville and other prisons. 

Major Wirz was a Swiss by birth, and was proved to be a kind, 
humane man to those under him. The Federal authorities hoped 
to break his spirit and make him confess to certain charges which 
would lay the blame of the sufferings at Andersonville on Jefferson 
Davis, who was then in prison at Fortress Monroe. Indeed they 
offered to release him if he would in any way implicate President 
Davis. But this hero refused. So he was hanged in the prison yard 
November 10th, 1865, while protesting innocence. It is well that the 
South has at last undertaken to see that justice is done a brave and 
gallant patriot who suffered martyrdom as did Jeffserson Davis 
for the "Lost Cause." 

I promised $10 from North Caiolina division for the Wirz mon- 
ument. The John Phifer Young Childrens chapter at Concord has 
given $3, and I propose that the division give the balance to make 
up the amount. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Henry A. London, 
Chairman Arlington and Wirz Monument Com. 



To Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

The matter of erecting a fountain in Raleigh and 
endowing scholarships at the A. and M. for the des- 
cendants of Confederate Veterans to the memory of 
Henry Lawson Wyatt, the first man killed in the war 
between the States, whs presented to the Convention 
by the Selma chapter. The fountain met with hearty 
endorsement, and each chapter agreed to aid in its 
erection, but the scholarships were disapproved of. as 
they were to be for the benefit of boys. 

The Mrs. Stonewall Jackson scholarship, which 
has been established by Salem Academy, was heartily 
endorsed. 

A telegram from Mrs. Parker, in response to the 
one sent the first day. was received and read to the 
Convention. 

Chapter reports were now again taken up, but a 
motion being made to dispense with the reading of any 
others, unless special work had been done during the 
year, most of the reports were handed in unread. 
Some of th Children's chapter reports were also read, 
and all were approved at once. 

A motion to endorse the Reformatory was intro- 
duced and passed, after which the Convention adjourn- 
ed for dinner. 



THIRD DAY.— AFTERNOON SESSION. 

At :; o'clock the hall was again tilled with dele- 
gates, all eager to continue the business of the day. 

A mortion was made to have a portrait of Josiah 
Turner painted, but no definite action was taken. 

A motion was then made and unanimously carried 
that hereafter all general taxes be sent with State fax- 
es to the State Treasurer, and by her forwarded to the 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 71 

general treasurer. 

Invitations to hold the Convention of 1908, in their 

cities, were then read from Gastonia, Concord, Golds- 
boro, Winston-Salem and Salisbury. On the vote be- 
ing taken Goldsboro was declared to be the place of 
the next meeting. 

After some discussion "'The Keystone" was chosen as 
the official organ of the North Carolina Division, and 
Mrs. H. De B. Wills was selected as its representative 
in the State. 

Mrs. James Kenan then introduced the following 
resolution, which was passed : 

"That the next work undertaken by the North 
Carolina Daughters, be the erection, on the campus at 
the State University, of a monument to the students 
and faculty, who went out from its walls in 1861 to 
fight and die for the South." 

Mrs. I. W. Faison was unanimously selected to rep- 
resent North Carolina at the Norfolk Convention, and 
read the President's report. She was also instructed 
to vote against the raising- of the general tax to $1.00 
per member. 

The continuing of the use of the Chapter Report 
blanks was taken up and discussed, md it was decided 
to use them another year. 

Mrs. E. E. Moffitt here introduced to the Conven- 
tion Capt. Richmond Pearson Hobson, of Merrimac 
fame, who made a short talk to the delegates. 

It was decided by vote to allow Mrs. H. A. London 
to draw from the State Treasury the amount needed to 
make up the uncontributed balance to the 810 pledged 
by hov at Cull' port to the Wirz monument. 

It here being announced that the cars were wait- 
ing to carry the Daughters to the reception at the State 



72 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

Normal, the Convention adjourned to meet at 8:30 
o'clock. 



THIRD DAY. —night session. 

Only a small number of ladies met for the last ses- 
sion of the eleventh Convention. 

It was decided that hereafter the tribute paid by 
the chapters to the members, who had died during the 
year be limited to only a few lines, as long obituaries 
took up too many pages in the minutes. 

The committee appointed to draft resolutions of 
thanks for the many courtesies received, read the fol- 
lowing : 

RESOLUTIONS OF THANKS.

annual meeting, one of the best in our history and further resolve : 

1. That we thank Mrs. Dalton, the President, for making it 
possible on the first night in Greensboro to renew old acquain- 
tances, make new ones and in every particular paved the way for 
making our opening session Wednesday morning one of peace and 
harmony and heartiest good will. 

2. We thank the city for her generous welcome extended 
through Mr. Taylor — not only into the gates of the city, but to the

Veteran and graceful orator, Major Steadman. 

3. To the Elks for their hospitable entertainment and luncheon 
artistically carried out in their colors.

joyment of their many thoughtful courtesies, and especially do we 
thank them for their consideration in servingluncheon so convenient 
to the Convention. 

"We can live without poetry, music and books, but civilized 
men cannot live without cooks." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Josephus Daniel, 
" M. R Adams, 
" Q. T. Jenkins, 
" Hunter Smith, 
" M. McD. Williams. 



Mrs. Moffitt here asked that she be authorized to 
purchase the duplicate to the gate given by Dr. Pratt 
to the North Carolina Division. 

This called for a warm discussion, but as there was 
not a quorum present and the matter had been laid 
over till next year, by a vote of the full Convention, 
nothing could be done in regard to Mrs. Moffitt's re- 
quest . 

The President then stated that as there was no

further business before the house, the Convention of 
1907 was declared adjourned.

UNVEILING OP PORTRAIT OP GEN. JULIAN S. 

CARR. 



On Thursday afternoon the unveiling of a very 
handsome portrait of this distinguished citizen and 
Veteran of North Carolina was unveiled by two of the 
young members of the Guilford chapter. 

The painting was the handiwork of one of the divis- 
ion's talented Daughters, Mrs. Marshall Williams, and is 
a speaking likeness of General Carr. 

The presentation address was made by Major CM. 
Stedman, who was so ably fitted to fill the position. 
PRESENTATION OF GEN. J. S. CARR'S PORTRAIT. 



Ladies of the Convention : 

In all ages of the world, every civilized State has sought to 
perpetuate the memory of those who have contributed to its pros- 
perity and renown. Hence has arisen the custom of preserving in 
buildings designed for the purpose, the portraits on canvass and the 
statues in bronze and marble of those who have illustrated upon 
the battlefield the valor and heroism of the people of the land of 
their birth and who in times of peace have advanced civilization 
and adorned society by the cultivation and practice of those 
virtues which ever charm and delight. It is well that it is so. A 
nation's gratitude so manifested tends to the moral and intellectual 
advancement of its citizens and stimulates them to deeds of pa- 
triotic endeavor. Many of these buildings so designed as a resting 
place for the good and great have been beautified and adorned by 
painter's and sculpter's highest art and the traveller in distantlands 
stands before them with awe and delight. 

In our sister State of Virginia, in the City of Richmond, made 
famous by the memories which cluster around it and which will 
ever attract the brave and heroic in every land, is a building neith- 
er imposing in appearance nor splendid in its dimensions. It was 
the home of Jefferson Davis, the President and embodiment of the 
Southern Confederacy, in that he presented its sternest valor and 
most exalted patriotism. It is dedicated to the Confederate soldier, 
to his valor and to his glory. There is an appropriateness in the 



70 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

selection of this building for the purpose intended which the 
vulgar and common mind would neither grasp nor comprehend. It 
is the Temple of Fame of the South, for there can be found the 
mementoes of the great deeds of its soldiers. Upon its walls will 
hang the portraits and within its niches will be placed the statues 
of those who have best illustrated its valor and adorned its citizen- 
ship. Within this building space has been allowed for each one 
of the Confederate States. To be deemed worthy of a resting place 
within its portals after death is an honor great and illustrious. To 
be selected whilst living as worthy of this distinction is a mani- 
festation of regard and esteem rarely won and never by the un- 
worthy. That token of highest approbation, of sincere admiration 
and affection lias been tendered to General Julian S. Carr, of North 

Carolina. 

I have been requested by the North Carolina Division of the 

United Daughters of the Confederacy to present his portrait which 
has been unveiled this afternoon to this Convention now in ses- 
sion, that it may be placed by its order and under its care in the 
North Carolina room in the building in Richmond, intended only 
tor those who have kept the faith with their own conscience and the 
dead heroes whom the South sent to the battlefield. It affords me 
very great and unalloyed pleasure to present to you this portrait of 
General Carr for the purpose intended. 

In the short space of time which I must necessarily allow my- 
self npon this pleasant occasion, it would be idle for me to attempt 
a delineation of the characteristics of one of the beloved of all 
North Carolinians and one of the most eminent of her citizens. I 
shall only detain you a few moments to mention one 
\ttribute of his character, which has been the paramount cause of 
the tribute of love and respect which has been rendered unto him. 

It is not his capacity for business and finance, although recog- 
nized by all to be of the highest order and which brought to him 
great success. It is not his thorough information and intimate ac- 
quaintance with affairs of State, although he ranks with the fore- 
most of the public men of North Carolina. It is not his unfailing 
charity to the poor, the weak and helpless, which has carried joy 
and gladness to many an humble home. It is not the pnblic spirit 
which ever animates him and has caused him to endow schools, 
colleges and churches, wherever the occasion demanded. It is not 
his great and marked love for North Carolina, for whose glory he 
has ever been ready for a sacrifice of his own perssnal interests. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 77 

No, not these nor other splendid elements of character which would 
have won for him the affection of any people. 

It is his love for the Confederate soldier, his kindness to those 
still living and his devotion to the memory of those who are dead. 
This has been a cardinal feature of his character in which he had 
no equal in North Carolina and I am tempted to say in this re- 
public. 

I rejoice to believe that there lives not in this State a single 
man who knows General Carr who will not be gratified that this 
high honor has been conferred upon him. 

When those who shall follow after us, make their pious pil- 
grimage to the city of Richmond and visit the building in which 
this portrait will be placed* may th«y be taught the story of the 
unselfish love of Gen. Julian S. Carr for the Confederate soldier and 
learn to emulate the virtues which have characterized his life, 
which have elevated humanity and reflected honor upon the State 
which gave him birth. 



Mrs. Wm, H. Overman, of Salisbury, in behalf of 
the North Carolina Division U.D.C. most gracefully re- 
ceived the portrait, which will be placed in the North 
Carolina Room in the Richmond Museum. 

REPLY OF MRS. WM. H. OVERMAN ON RECEIVING GEN. 
CARR'S PORTRAIT. 



Julian S. Carr, patriot, philanthropist, lover and friend of the 
old soldiers, commander of the Confederate Veterans of North 
Carolina, gentleman, prince among men. 

In the name of North Carolina Daughters of the Confederacy, I 
accept this portrait to be placed on the walls of the North Carolina 
room in the Confederate Museum at Richmond, where it will hang 
with a galaxy of brave men of North Carolina to tell the story of 
that history that we reverence, next to our blessed religion. It is to 
be placed there with our warriors and statesmen, Gen. Bryan Grimes, 
Col. Sparrow, Zebulon Baird Vance, Chas. F. Fisher, Matt Ransom, 
Gen. L. O'B. Branch, Hon. Burton Craig and a host of other South- 
ern men who lived and died and made the Old North State great. 

Looking forward we see future generations visiting the Museum 
and the question will be asked who was Gen. Julian S. Carr, and 



78 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

the answer will be given with pride, a young man who was not out 
of his teens when the great war in the Southland ended, but who 
went to work, built up a fine business, was eminently successful 
and who faithfully served his country as a public spirited citizen, 
a promotor for good, a philanthropist in his State, a generous 
donor to the Soldiers Home, a benafactor, a prince among men, the 
old soldier's friend. 

The Daughters of the Confederacy are proud to place this por- 
trait on the walls of the North Carolina room in the Museum in 
Richmond, and we accept it with pride and pleasure and grati- 
tude.

SOCIAL FEATURES OF THE CONVENTION. 



Although the hearts and homes of Greensboro's hos- 
pitable citizens had been thrown open to the delegate 
Daughters, yet there were several special functions 
given in their honor, which deserve more than a mere 
passing mention. 

On Tuesday night the handsome home of the presi- 
dent of the Guilford chapter, Mrs. R. F. Dalton, was a 
scene of beauty on which to feast the eye. Here a 
formal reception was given in honor of the visitors. The 
red and white of the U. D. C. was carried out to per- 
fection in the decoration of this ideal city home. In 
the parlors palms,ferns andSouthern smilax only added 
to the beauty of the red and white flowers. In the 
dining room were red and white roses and carnations, 
while candles with their shades of the same hues shed 
a mellow light over the scene. Hidden behind a screen of 
evergreens an orchestra poured forth delightful music. 
Elegant refreshments were served during the reception 
which lasted from 8:30 till 12:20 o'clock. 

On Wednesday the delegates were the guests of the 
Elks at a most sumptuous luncheon in the dining room 
of Smith Memorial building. The room had been 
most tastefully decorated in bunting and Confederate 
flags, and the dainty souvenirs were tiny rosettes of 
lavender, the Elks colors. 

On Wednesday night the Merchants and Manufac- 
turers Club gave a reception to the Daughters in their 
elegant rooms in the City National Bank buHding. 
Nothing had been spared to add to the beauty of the 
rooms by the placing of handsome potted plant? of 



80 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

all kinds. Music was rendered by the orchestra all 
during the evening, and punch and other refreshments 
were served in the decorated dining room. 

On Wednesday afternoon a most enjoyable drive 
was given by the ladies of the city, at which time each 
lady handled the reins of her own team and carried her 
visitors sight-seeingin to anypart of the city they desired 
to go. This was one of the most enjoyable events of the 
Convention. 

The Guilford chapter served a most delightful 
luncheon on Thursday in the dining room of the Smith 
Memorial building on Thursday, thus adding another 
link in the chain of memory which will ever bind them 
to the Daughters of the Old North State. 

Thursday night a most brilliant reception was giv- 
en at the beautiful home of Mrs. C. M. Vanstory. The 
decorations were most elaborate and these, added to the 
beautiful robes of the many women gathered to do 
honor co the hospitality of one of Greensboro's fairest 
daughters, made a picture that will long linger in the 
memory of all present. While at Mrs. Dalton's the 
officers of the Division formed most of the receiving 
party, at Mrs. Vanstory's, not only the officers of the 
Convention, but also those who were that day elected 
for the coming year were in line. Music, which always 
enlivens the many entertainments, again poured its 
pleasing strains upon the ear. During the evening de- 
lightful refreshments, as well as punch were served, 
and it was a late hour before the guests departed for 
their homes. 

The final event of this week of social entertain- 
ment came on Friday afternoon, when at 4:30 o'clock, 
the trolly cars, provided by the faculty of the State 
Normal, whirled the Daughters, as well as many other 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 81 

guests, out to this most ideal of women's colleges. At 
the entrance to the grounds the guests were met by 
young lady marshals and ushered into the spacious 
auditorium of the Students Building. And here they 
beheld a sight, the lovliness of which is not often given 
to them. Seated in the main body of the auditorium 
were five hundred young women, with bright happy 
faces, robed in purest white, with just a touch of red 
about each costume. The visitors were given seats on 
the rostrum where they could take in the beautiful 
scene. Dixie, the Boney Blue Flag and other songs,dear 
to every Daughter's heart were sung by the young la- 
dies, accompanied by the college orchestra. President 
Foust delivered a very fine address of welcome to his 
visitors, after which he called upon the new State 
president, Mrs. I. W. Faison, who in her own graceful 
manner responded to the warm words of greeting. 
Mrs. F M. Williams, the Recording Secretary, was 
next called on for a few words, after which Capt. Hob- 
son was introduced and made a brief talk. But by far 
the crowning event of the afternoon was the touch- 
ingly beautiful rendition of the Conquered Banner, by 
Mrs. Sharpe, whose clear ringing tones brought tears 
to many eyes as she sang, "Furl it, fold it, let it rest." 
A very dainty collation was served in the dining 
room in the Spencer building, during which time the 
young ladies gathered around the familiar faces of 
friends and acquaintances. All too soon came the hour 
of departure, but this visit gave to the Daughters a 
lasting impression of that great and grand institution 
of learning, The State Normal and Industrial School 
for Young Women. 



82 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 
report of the norfolk convention. 



This Convention was held in November 9-12th and was opened 
in the Auditorium of the Exposition grounds, but this place being 
too inconvenient, all other sessions were held in the Odd Fellows 
Hall in the city of Norfolk. There were between 250 and 300 dele- 
gates present. With the exception of Virginia, North Carolina had 
the largest number of delegates present. Owing to the fact that many 
of our chapters had failed to send in credential blanks only 26 of 
the 80 chapters in the State were represented. 

There was really very little done that has any material effect 
upon the chapters. For want of time the revisions of the constitu- 
tion and the amendments to same were laid over until next year in 
Atlanta. Consequently the matter of increased taxation was not 
considered. 

The Convention decided to take upon itself the work of erec- 
ting the monument at Arlington so that it and the monument at 
Shiloh were the main work given to the chapters. Several questions 
brought up and passed had already been incorporated into the 
Constitution of North Carolina Daughters. The report of the work 
in our dear old State was the best that was read by any State 
president, and every heart within the breast of a North Caroli- 
nian beat with greater pride as she heard it. 

Hereafter two copies of the Minutes of the General Convention 
will be sent "free of cost" to every chapter president. A complete 
roster of chapter officers must be sent to the State corresponding 
secretary in time for her to have in hands of corresponding' secre- 
tary general by January first of each year. This is a very impor- 
tant matter, as all important papers and blanks are sent to these 
officers, so that when wrong names are published these papers are 
often mislaid. The money left over from the Jefferson Davis monu- 
ment fund was voted to be given to the Jefferson Davis Monument 
Association at New Orleans, who are endeavoring to erect a monu- 
ment there in the city where he died. 

Records of all Crosses of Honor ever awarded by chapters are 
to be sent to Custodian so she may make a complete register. 

There were no new laws made by which chapters should be 
governed. At the election of officers Mrs. Martin S. Willard was 
chosen first vice-president and the choice could have fallen upon 
no one who would wear the honors more gracefully or with more 
credit to her State. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 83 
things to be remembered. 



That in order to vote members in Conventions per capita tax 
must be paid and members application blanks registered in State 
Registrar's book. Th.it according to ruling at Morganton Convention, 
chapter elections must be held at December meeting and list of offi- 
cers sent at once to State Recording and Corresponding secretaries 
so as to be in their hands before January first. 

That general per capita remains at 10 cents. 

That both State and general taxes must be sent to State trea- 
surer. 

That all money given by chapters for any work must pass 
through the hands of State treasurer for distribution. 

. That all Childrens chapters must, according to general consti-

is manifested in our work. We have held our meetings regularly 
each month except one, and we failed to meet on account of sick- 
ness and death among us. We have had seven new members to

ted towards raising the monument funds, and we hope at an early 
day to place the order for our monument. On Jan. 19th we had two 
addresses on the life of Lee and Jackson, and served dinner to 
about one hundred veterans. On May 10th Dr. Dixon made a very 
appropriate and stirring speech to the Veterans, after which the 
Daughters and children marched to the cemetery and decorated the 
graves with flowers and Confederate flags.

Remarks — This chapter is interested in the movement started 
by H. L. Wyatt chapter, to erect in Raleigh a monument to our first 
hero at Bethel and will do what we can to interest the county from 
which he enlisted. On the 19th of Jan. I had the pleasure of or- 
ganizing in this place the Dixie-Lee chapter, a band of bright active 
girls, always a source of inspiration to us. Would that every chap- 
ter in the State had such an auxilliary. 

We have sent to State Historian, three historical papers, "The 
Life of Col. F. M. Parker" by our historian, Mrs. E. D. Foxhall and 
two papers on the life of Gen. Wm. Dorsey Pender by, Capt. S. A. 
Ashland, Col. Louis Young. It is the custom of this chapter to ob- 
serve Gen. Pender's birth on Feb. 6th. Mrs. John W. Cotten on 
committee to furnish program for the day, wrote tothese two gentle- 
men who were on Gen. Pender's staff for personal reminiscences, 



114 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

and both responded cordially with these most interesting papers. 

On the death of every Confederate veteran in our county this 
chapter sends a beautiful ivy wreath bearing a small silk Confed- 
erate flag. 

For Soldiers Home $5, Robert Ransom portrait fund $2, flowers 
to Camp Chase $1, wreath for Pres. Davis' monument at Rich-

On Memorial Day we had interesting exercises. In addition to 
decorating the graves, we had an instructive address which was at 
the Monument and listened to by large number of citizens, includ- 
ing the local militia, which paraded and fired salutes for us at the 
three cemeteries. We had previously made up and marked with 
painted slabs the graves of seven Coafeijrate SDldierj. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 115 

On August 1st. (the day of the local re-union) we raised a Con- 
federate Battle flag on a pole 37 feet hight near the Monument. 
Eleven little girls to represent the eleven Southern States, raised 
the flag. Songs, speeches and music were in the program. After 
this we had an address by an old Veteran followed by a sumptuoxis 
dinner to the Old Soldiers. A brass band was on hand. 

Since the last report we have finished our pledge of $20.00 for 
the Memorial Arch at Raleigh, the balance being $10.00.

This chapter is in good shape, the meetings have been heldreg- 
ularly and interestingly. Davis' birthday and the June meeting 
were omitted, because both dates came in conflict with the Rich- 
mond reunion. Lee's birthday was fittingly observed, with an 
appropriate song service, and a beautiful address by the Rev. Dr. 
Morton. Memorial day, May 10th was honored by a procession of 
nearly six hundred school children, wearing confederate colors, and 
bearing flowers and flags with which to decorate our Soldiers' 
graves. A large crowd of citizens of both town and country joined 
the procession. We respond cheerfully to a great many calls, but 
not to every one. We have contributed fourteen and one half dol- 



116 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

lars to the Soldiers Home in Raleigh; Twelve and one half of this 
bought chairs and rugs for the room we have already furnished. 
We have pledged ourselves to give one hundred dollars to the Con- 
federate Monument to be built at Arlington, seventy-five dollars of 
this amount is in bank with an entertainment on hand this week 
from which we hope to realize the remaining twenty-five. We will 
also contribute liberally to the Wyatt Memorial to be built at

Remarks — Our chapter is very proud of the work done during 
the past year. Our beautiful monument to "the Confederate soldiers 
of Catawba county" is completed and was unveiled on August 15 
in the presence of an immense crowd, among whom was a large del- 
egation of Daughters from the Southern Stars chapter, Lincolnton. 
The address was made by Hon. Locke Craig, of Asheville, and 
was a gem of its kind. One hundred and fifty members of the two 
childrens chapters of Newton and Conover, both auxiliaries to the 
Ransom-Sherrill chapter, took a prominent part in the exercises 
and to them and their leaders, Misses Thornton and Smyre, was 
given the honor of drawing the veil, and afterwards covering the 
mound with nature's most beautiful flowers. On Lee-Jackson day 
the design for the monument was selected by the Veterans 
and Daughters and the contract signed with only $35 in sight with 
which to meet expenses. Through the kindness of Senator 

Overnman we obtained from the Government the gift of an immense 
fort cannon, we agreeing to pay the freight, and this together with 
the mounting of the cannon added $151 to our other expenses. On 
the day of the annual reunion we gave a dinner to 600 Veterans, 
their wives and widows of those who had answered to the last roll 
call. 

This day had been chosen as the one forthe unveiling of themonu- 
ment and the sun never rose on a more beautiful day. The Veterans 
had decided that they wished to pass by the hidden monument as 
they marched to their seats beneath the wide spreading oaks in the 
court square. It was indeed a soul inspiring sight to seethese old men, 
many of them without arm or leg silently file by the monument and 
raise their hats as they passed in memory of their dead comrades. 
Behind them came the long line of little children and Daughters, 
each of whom lowered the flag she carried in honor of the immortal 
dead. 

A closely kept account, of all expenses connected with the 



118 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

monument, the canmn and with reunion day, shows that the total 
expenses were $2,720.08, every cent of which is paid and we have a 
a balance of $132 for the purpose of obtaining afield cannon to place 
on the other side of the monument and for other chapter expenses. 

All this money with the exception of $15 was contributed 
by the people of Catawba county, so that, truly 
can our inscription say, "Erected by the people of Catawba coun- 
ty." Nor in this connection should we fail to pay a grateful tri- 
bute of thanks to the business men of Newton, who have always 
stood so generously by us and opened their hearts and pocket- 
books when called upon to entertain the Veterans on the annual 
reunion days, always raisng for us between $200 and $300 for the 
expenses of these occasions. 

Besides this great work we have paid our pledge of $10 towards 
sending two Veterans' descendants to theState Normal at Greens- 
boro, given $1 for flowers for the Jefferson Davis monument at the 
time of its unveiling June 3, $1 to the Gen. Robert Ransom portrait 
fund, $1 to the Vance monument fund, besides other calls upon 
us.

attended than ever before, and apparently as intensely enjoyed by 
us. 

One Veteran, and but one, passed over the river this year and 
we followed him to his last resting place with tribute of flowers. 

"Under the Southern Cross" was presented at the close of the 
holidays with gratifying success, both from artistic and financial 
standpoint. One hundred dollars was netted in the one night, and 
many requests are made for its repetition. 

Historical work has been pressed unceasingly, a number of pa- 
pers being secured and failed. As stated annually at this Conven-

brightest and most comfortable in the building. 

On the 19th of January the one hundredth anniversary of Gen. 
R. E. Lee's birthday, Mr. Stainback from Weldon, N. C, entertain- 
ed about fifty of the veterans with a splendid address, after which 
they were given a nice dinner of stewed oysters, coffee, pickles, etc. 
They all seemed happy and enjoyed the day very much. The 10th 
of May being Memorial day, Hon. John Lamb from Richmond, 
made the address. There were 80 Veterans in line, all the soldiers 
were decorated with flags and plenty of beautiful flowers. After the 
speaking, dinner was served to the Veterans and 300 school child- 
ren. We sent $1 to help buy flowers for the Davis monument when 
it was unveiled; $5 to the Southern Industrial Association, and we 
gave $36 to help furnish the hall for the Buck Kitchin Camp, where 
the Veterans and D. C. meet every first Thursday in the month. 
All day every first Thursday the Hall is open, so if any Veteran 
from the county comes in he will have a place to rest and feel at 
home. We furnished the material and $5 and Miss Nannie Smith 
made a beautiful flag for the Buck Kitchin Camp.

Remarks — In June this chapter called a meeting for the purpose 
of taking forward steps towards a movement to erect a monument 



United Daughters of th*e Confederacy 125 

to him whose name our chapter bears. The few faithful members 
enthusiastically favored this movement to further honor Henry 
Wyatt, pledging $150.00. July fourth we held our first festival 
commemorative of the beginning of the war in glory, not its end in 
cypress. 

Our town caught the spirit, of our patriotism, thus helping to 
make the day one not only to be remembered by our chapter but 
by the entire community. The Edgecombe Guards of Tarboro under 
the command of Captain Paul Jones added to the attractions of the 
day. With a good band, brilliant addresses, a sham battle by this 
splendid company, our chapter could not take the credit of the 
success which crowned our first undertaking. 

We set apart September 25th as our Educational Day. Then it 
was we gave our veterans a dinner. The addresses by Messrs. Con- 
nor and Judd were inspiring not only to the veterans, but to our 
entire community, arousing all to the duty we bore this cause. 

Our one regret is failing to contribute $20.00 to the Memorial 
Arch. However we hope to do so at an early date.

Remarks — In sending a report of the R. G. A. Love chapter, we 
regret to state that so little has been accomplished the past year. 
Our meetings, owing to many reasons, have not been held regu- 
larly. 

It was our purpose, and we wished very much, to observe 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 129 

Memorial day,but theConfederate reunion interfered with our plans. 
However, the morning that our Veterans left for Richmond we 
rnet with them at the Court House to wish them "bon voyage" and 
distribute certificates of eligibility for Crosses of Honor. Quite a 
number of these certificates have been returned to the chapter. 

Members of our chapter take kindly interest in the welfare of 
Jeff Cabe, the crippled son of a Confederate Veteran, feeling that 
in helping the afflicted,we were fulfilling our mission morefully than 
by building monument to the dead. 

By assistance given us by several chapters in the State, Jeff Cabe 
was sent to John's Hopkins Hospital. One of his limbs was ampu- 
tated, the other strengthened by braces. His general health has so 
improved that from a helpless invalid unnable to take a step for 
more than twelve years, he now walks fairly well on crutches to 
church and to and from his place of business some distance from 
his residence.

money for the monument. We presented 35 Crosses of Honor dur- 
ing the year. 

At 1 o'clock, May 10, 1907, during the ringing of church bells, 
blowing of whistles and playing of the bands, a handsome monu- 
ment was unveiled to our Confederate soldiers, under the ausp icies 
of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, Gov. R. B. Glenn, made 
an eloquent and patriotic address to a large and patriotic audience. 
After the address dinner was served to the old soldiers. Late in 
the afternoon beautiful flowers were placed upon the graves of 38 
old soldiers who have passed away in the last few years.

with the Graded School. The exercises consisted of essays, re- 
citations, music and address by Mr. W. D. Merritt. It was quite an 
interesting occasion. On May the 10th we had a reunion of the 
Veterans, and a most excellent address by Mr. Everette of Durham. 
We presented twenty crosses of honor and afterwards served din- 
ner. The day was thoroughly enjoyed by the Veterans.

FINANCIAL REPORT. 

Receipts $281.31 Disbursements $222.60 

Remarks — Encouraged by the success of our first year's efforts, 
we began with renewed energy, and are proud to report that the 
Gastonia chapter is in a most prosperous condition and doing good 
work. 

Jan. 19, May 10 and June 3, were all fittingly celebrated and 
pleasing indeed is the enthusiasm and appreciation shown in the 
large attendance of the dear old Veterans who always meet with us 
and never tire telling of the bravery of our Southland. 

There are about 240 Veterans in our county, to these we serve 
refreshments on all celebration days, and on the 10th of May we 



United Daughters op the Confederacy 133 

give our annual "Veterans dinner." Iu only the twenty-two months 
of our chapter's existence we have bestowed 217 Crosses of Honor. 

During the early Spring we realized from a Bazaar and lunch- 
eon served by the ladies of the chapter, $198.50. By two of the 
members a beautiful silk flag was made and presented by the 
chapter to the Wm. Gamble Camp of Gaston county. 

For the relief of needy veterans we have contributed $20, to the 
Gastonia Room of the Soldiers Home we have sent $15. Towards 
the General Robert Ransom portrait for the North Carolina Room 
in Richmond $2, also our share in the floral design placed upon the 
Jefferson Davis monument during the Reunion in Richmond. 

To a young band recently organized in our county, who gra- 
ciously responds to our calls for music on all the celebration days, 
we have donated $22. We have contributed $10 toward the educa- 
tional fund for two young girls at the State Normal, who must be 
descendants of Veterans. 

To the graduating class of the Gastonia High School, our chap- 
ter gives each year a gold medal for the best paper on the "War Be- 
tween the States and its Causes." The contest is entered into with 
enthusiasm as we hope in this way to be able to teach the truth to 
the youth around us. 

The Historical Committee has this year sent to the State His- 
torian sketches of the lives of six of our Veterans.. The work of 
our Memorial committee, thus far, has been to search out the 
graves of every Confedrate soldier buried in both town and county, 
and on each one is placed a laurel wreath and Confederate flag each 
Memorial day. 

In addition to this, at a cost of $94, granite markers appropri- 
ately cut, with the raised letters C. S. A. upon the top have been 
placed at the grave, of every soldier buried in our vicinity. 

When able it is our purpose to erect a handsome monument 
to our Confederate dead, and we want to do zealously any other 
work our hands may find to do. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. THOS. LEE CRAIG, 

President.

Remarks — We organized our chapter more than a year ago but 
did not send in our taxes or blanks until about October 1907. The 
work is new to us and our membership very much scattered. Nearly 
all of our members live in the country off the railroad and are 
scattered over a territory of twenty five or thirty miles, so you can 
see it is almost impossible for us to meet often. We have been 
trying to hold our meetings quarterly in connection with the Con- 
federate veterans meetings. 

The Daughters and Sons united and bought a captain's uniform 
for our captain of the veterans camp. He was a faithful soldier 
and is now too poor to afford anything of the kind himself. His 
greatest pleasure is in attending the meetings of the veterans and 
working to establish his camp. His wife is an invalid. The Sons 
and Daughters are now striving to raise funds to erect a monument 
to the Confederate soldiers of Jackson county.

We beg leave to report that the Washington Gray Chapter 
Children of the Confederacy is in good condition. Owing how- 
ever to the illness and death of our late directress, Mrs. Margaret 
Arthur Call, we have not accomplished as much as in past years. 

When the spring weather opens we hope to resume active work 
and keep up the interest we have always had since our organiza- 
tion. 

Our chapter has passed through a deep sorrow in the death of 
our beloved leader, Mrs. Call, but with bowed heads we submit as 
best we can hoping for bright days to come.

Since our last report we have made the following contributions: 
Thanksgiving offering to the Soldiers Home $5.00. Arlington 
monument $5.00. $2.00 to Wirz monument. $2.00 to the Randolph 
Shotwell portrait. We expect to send our usual Thanksgiving 
present to the Soldiers Home this year, and then turn our attention 
to securing the necessary amount for a handsome portrait of John 
Phifer Young to be placed in the North Carolina room at Rich- 
mond.

No. 5— JANE HUGHES CHAPTER, NEW BERNE. 
Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

It gives me great pleasure to send you a report of the Jane 
Hughes Children of the Confederacy, of which we are justly proud. 
We have over eighty members and are constantly adding new ones; 
the attendance is very good, and their interest is charming indeed. 
The dues are small, and we call upon them for no extra contribu- 
tions, excepting the "Birthday Fund," which is a great pleasure to 
them. Each child bringing the number of pennies they are years 
old after each birthday celebration. 

They attend in a body, always the tenth of May service, the 
third of June and the nineteenth of January, and marching behind 
their flag with their red and white ribbons flying, call forth much 
applause in passing turough the streets and entering the Hall. We 
use in the meetings the Confederate Catechism, but do not require 
them to study at home. One has only to hear them in one heated 
argument to feel that the memory of the dear lost cause is safe in 
their hands to be kept always green. 

During the year they have endowed a bed at the Soldiers 
Home, know as the "Jane Hughes Bed." Contributed to the New 
Berne chapter $5.00 (towards a special contribution of this chapter.) 
Sent fifty cents towards the floral offering for the Jefferson Davis 
Monument, and still have in their treasury a few dollars. Hoping 
another year to send a delegate.

their work, which is mostly memorial. Theirs it is to gather in the 
vast quantities of flowers that yearly cover the graves of our hero 
dead, and in one long procession followed by veterans, Daughters 
and many others their hands strew nature's fairest blossoms above 
the silent Confederate soldier as he sleeps his last long sleep. 
On January 19th, the children attend the exercises of the Daughters. 
At our August Veterans reunion the old soldier's heart was made 
glad by the happy joyous faces of the merry young as in their Con- 
federate colors and with flying flags they did honor to these noble 
heroes. To this chapter and their sister one at Conover was given 
the houor of taking the most prominent part in the unveiling of 



142 Minutes of Eleventh Annual Convention 

the Confederate Monument on August 15th. And beautiful indeed 
was the picture as they surrounded the monument and with joyous 
yoices sang the version ofDixie dedicated to the Catawba soldiers and 
how they did make the welkin ring as with waving flags they voiced 
the words. "Then here's three cheers for those who are with us." 

This little band has awakened an interest in our Confederate 
welfare which without them would yet be slumbering. 
Respectfully submitted, 

CARRIE THORNTON, 

Leader. 



No. 12— STONEWALL JACKSON CHAPTER, CONOVER. 

The Stonewall Jackson Chapter has a membership of only 
thirty-five, but they are fully awake to the work assigned to them. 
As they are so scattered, some living in the country, it is hard to 
get them together except on Memorial and Veterans reunion days. 

To these willing hands is given the sweet privilege of tending 
the graves of the Confederate soldiers buried in and near Conover. 
It is with no show or ceremony that yearly on Memorial day they 
lay their flowers on these lowly mounds, and also send wreathes to 
their mother chapter in Newton to use in memory of those who 
sleep far from home and kindred. 

The chapter took part in the unveiling exercises in Newton 
and will carry with them through life memories of that glorious 
occasion. 

Respectfully submitted 

MRS. F. S. SMYRE, 

Leader. 



No. 13— J. D. MOORE CHAPTER, GASTONIA. 

On the 7th of April 1905 the J. D. Moore chapter was organized 
with a membership of fifty children, who have done fine work and 
shown most gratifying interest. The membership has increased to 
sixty-two. Thirty-five of these have received certificates. 

They meet monthly in the homes of the different members, and 
each name is answered with a couplet from some Confederate poem. 
These meetings are made bright and we hope beneficial by essays 
and readings on the Confederacy, musical selections and recitations 
all by the children and often refreshments are served. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 143 

They always assist in the exercises on the different "Celebra- 
tion days." Theirs are the hands that place flowers on the graves 
on Memorial day, a day made especially impressive this year by 
the sixty-two "little patriots," dressed in red and white, riding on 
a beautifully decorated float in the procession from the church to 
the cemetery. 

Lives of four veterans have been added to their historical re- 
cords, besides these each member, when making application is re- 
quired to write a brief history of the ancestor under whom she 
joins. 

They haye $132.26 in their treasury, every cent made them- 
selves, and it is known as the "monument fund," their chief object 
being to assist the Gastonia chapter in erecting a monument. 

The chapter officers are Miss Ruth Boyce, president; 1st vice- 
president, Miss Loretta Culp; 2nd vice-president, Miss Unice 
Spencer; secretary, Miss Jennie Pegram; treasurer, Miss Clara Arm- 
strong.

The Dixie-Lee chapter, auxiliary to the Wm. Dorsey Pender 
chapter, U. D. C, was organized on January nineteenth, the one 
hundredth anniversary of the birth of General Robert E. Lee. We 
began with ten members but have increased to eighteen during the 
year. Our monthly meetings are well attended. We have contri- 
buted the following: Two baskets of provisions to old disabled 
soldiers, and flowers for the funeral of the founder of our auxiliary. 
In September we gave a "Lawn fete" and raised twenty-one dollars. 
Which amount we will donate to the Henry Wyatt Memorial fund. 
Jefferson Davis' birthday was observed by this chapter and we took 
part in the exercises on Memorial day, acting as marshals.

No. 17— GUILFORD GRAYS CHAPTER, GREENSBORO. 

The Guilford Grays auxiliary to the Guilford chapter, U. D. C, 
was organized September 1907 with an enrollment of twenty-five 
children. Mrs. J. G. Brodnax, Sr. was elected leader, Miss Annie 
Glenn, secretary. Regular monthly meetings every second Tuesday 
in the Carnegie Library. 



No. 18— JOSHUA VICK CHAPTER, SELMA. 

Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

The Joshua Vick Chapter was organized under a committee 
from the Henry Wyatt Chapter, April 9th, 1907. 

We have twenty members ranging in age from five to fifteen. 
They are very enthusiastic little Confederates and since its organi- 
zation have ever been ready to do all in their power for any cause 
brought before them. 

The children meet on the ninth day of each month, during the 
winter months. They will study the lives of Jeff Davis, Robert 
Lee and Stonewall Jackson. Regular programmes for each meeting 
will be arranged, and the U. D. C. catechism is to be used in con- 
nection with the other work. 

On Memorial Day the children marched in a body, dressed in 
red and white, from the graded school to the cemetery, where 
appropriate exercises were held. They are now deeply interested 
in the erection of the monument to Henry Wyatt, our first Confede- 
rate hero, and will give a donation to this object. 

Two dollars has been sent to the Soldiers' Home in Raleigh, 
fifty cents to the Ransom Portrait Fund and we have a balance of 
two dollars. Next year we hope to have a much better report for 
we love our cause.

Within a year the Reaper Death claimed from our midst two 
members of the Wm. A. Closs chapter U. D. C. It seems that "Fate 
smiles upon, then stabs the human heart" for they were taken from 
us in the flower of their youth: "Death lies upon them like an 
untimed frost upon the fairest flower of the hill."

WM. DORSEY PENDER CHAPTER. 

TARBORO. 

Mrs. Algernon Hassard-Short, nee Miss Routhe Bridges, 
daughter of Col. John L. Bridges of Edgecombe Co. passed 
from this life into the rest of Paradise, on September 9th 1907, after 
an illness lasting many years. She was cheerful and uncomplain- 
ing, doing much to brighten the lives of others. She was devoted 
and untiring in her duties as wife and mother, and her intelligence 
and attractive personality endeared her to all who came within the 
sphere of her influence. For many years she had resided at the 
North, but her deepest love and sympathy were always given to 
the South and to the Confederate cause. We cherish the memory 
of this loyal Southern woman, a member of the Wm. Dorsey Pen- 
der chapter U. D. C. 

MRS. ADAH BASS. 



MRS. HENRY C. BOURNE. 

Mrs. Maria Clark Bourne, daughter of Gov. Henry Toole Clarke, 
passed from this life into the life Eternal on June 4th 1907. In 
1902 she felt it her patriotic duty to organize this chapter and 
served faithfully as its charter p resident, for two years and after- 
wards as chairman of the "Memorial Committee," and was our vice 
president. She was a woman of noble type, ambitious and of high 
ideals. The church has lost a lovely Christian woman, our chapter 
a most useful and valued member, and the veterans a loyal friend. 
We love and honor her memory. 

MRS. L. L. STATEN.

ROANOKE MINUTE MEN CHAPTER. 

LITTLETON 

Entered into rest March 11th, 1907 Mrs. Sarah Jenkins. These 
facts are sufficient to outline the history of her life, but eternity 
alone will reveal the fullness and richness of this life itself. The 
influence of her pious example, the testimony of her unfaltering 
faithfulness to her church, her devotion to the Confederate cause, 
these will be remembered long after her body has turned to dust. 
She will be missed in her home, missed by the Roanoke Minute 
Men chapter, U. D. C, of which she was historian. But her earthly 
work was "Well done." Like Him she served she could say 
it is finished.

MINUTES 



OF THE 



TWELFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 



OF THE 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 

North Carolina Division. 



FIRST DAY— MORNING SESSION. 

The Twelfth Annual Convention of the North 
Carolina Division, United Daughters of the Confeder- 
acy, met in the city of Goldsboro, on Wednesday, 
October 14th, 1908, at 10 o'clock in the morning-, with 
Miss Sue Collier, the efficient president of the Thomas 
Euftin Chapter, our hostess, in the chair. 

The meetings were held in the handsome Odd 
Fellows hall, where everything had been provided, that 



6 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Contention 

could tend to the- comfort and convenience of the 
delegates. 

The meeting was called to order promptly by Miss 
Collier and opened with a most beautiful prayer by 
Rev. W. P. Constable. The address of welcome, in be- 
half of the cit^ was delivered by Mr. George C. Royall, 
and so cordial was that welcome that the hearts of the 
visitors w r ent out to the hospitable citizens of this truly 
Southern city. 

ADDRESS OF MR. ROYAL. 

Madam President, and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

"It is always esteemed by me a high honor to represent Golds- 
boro in any capacity in which I may be delegated, but to stand in 
this presence to-day to speak for my town is surely the highest of 
honors; for — coming as you do from all sections of the Old North 
State, whose glorious record in what you are banded together to 
commemorate is secure and unapproachable in History — your cause 
is indeed a noble one. It thrills the manhood, the womanhood and 
the childhood of our great Southland. Your badge of membership 
is one to be coveted, for it is the insignia of the highest type of 
woman. It is not one of preferment, but earned by the untarnished 
valor of your heroic ancestors — the greatest soldiers in the history 
of the world. In this hurrying, busy age, when commercialism is 
absorbing sentimentalism it is beautiful to see you keeping alive 
the memories of our glorious past and I am proud to feel that 
notwithstanding the progress Goldsboro has achieved in commerce 
and in manufacture, she has always found time to turn aside from 
the fever and the strifes of material affairs to commemorate the 
deeds of our Confederate heroes — hence you are among a people 
sincerely responsive to your cause and in their names it is my 
great privilege to extend to eaeh and every one of you a most cor- 
dial welcome." 



Who couid have spoken with words of deeper 
feelmg or that would have more impressed the visitors 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 7 

with the sincerity of the meaning than did fJol. Adam 
C. Davis, as in the name of the Thomas Ruitin Chap- 
ter, he bid this band of Daughters welcome as the 
guests of its members. It is greatly to be regretted 
that this line address cannot be given in print, but as 
Col. Davis spoke without notes or copy his welcome 
could not be obtained. 



In response to these words of welcome, the state 
president, Mrs. I. W. Faison replied in an address, that 
voiced the sentiments of each and every delegate 
present, 

RESPONSE BY MRS. FAISON. 

Representing the United Daughters of the Confederacy, North 
Carolina Division, allow me to thank yon most heartily, Madam 
President of the Goldsboro Chapter, Mr. Royall representing the 
city and Col. Davis representing the Thomas Ruffin Chapter U. D. 
C. for a welcome so graciously extended. It is a pleasure to which 
we have looked forward for a year and I voice the sentiment of the 
whole West as well as the East when I say we are glad to be with 
the "down homers" of the sand hills and will offer you one of 
North Carolina's toasts: 

"Here's to the laud of the long leaf pine 
The summer land where the sun doth shine, 

Where the weak grow strong and the strong grow great, 
Here's to down home, the old North State." 

We hope we may be to you as a breeze wafted from our moun- 
tain heights and foot hills of the West and our doings and sayings 
be as enervatiug and refreshing. 

"Here's to the land of the sky" that gave us birth, 
Is the best old land on this greeu earth, 

We'll drink here a toast where e'ver we roam, 
To God's own country, the land up home." 



8 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

Your part of the State was made historic by the battle of Bentons- 
ville and when your men and boys shouldered their muskets and went 
out in defense of their rights — State rights and principle they knew 
to be right— and are at last being recognized as such by all the civi- 
lized world. Your town and county are conceded to be one of the 
finest trucking sections in the United States and all surroundings 
show evidence of wealth and prosperity. Your industries are 
varied and that means much to a town. In looking over the truck- 
ing statistics I find that Wayne County is second to none and you 
should be very proud of your people and county. The educational 
Ex-Gov. Chas. B. Aycock, of Goldsboro, N. C, is one of your fore- 
most men and is well beloved and revered for the good he has done 
for the cause of education in our State. Jas. Y. Joyner, another of 
your prominent men, lias made a name for himself on educational 
lines and is still doing fine work for the good of the State. 

We, the women of the South, the United Daughters of the 
Confederacy, meet every year to renew our vows of loyalty to the 
sacred memories of the past and as an association, whose avowed 
purpose is to commemorate the heroic deeds of our dead and hand 
down true history to our children. And we propose to teach our 
own children of our own Southland our own truths, in our own 
way. The political discussions of the present day are eloquently 
vindicating the patriotic views of President Jefferson Davis for the 
rights of the States. Both political parties are sounding solemn 
warnings against encroachments of Federal Authority. So you see 
year by year, day by day, our ideas of right are being vindicated 
by our own country and the whole civilized world. 

Our organization is unique and there is no record of such a one 
in the world. In all by gone years never have the women of any 
defeated people been banded together for the sublime purpose of 
proving the rightfulness of the cause for which their men fought 
and women endured and cared for the wounded and afflicted who 
survived. In all history of the past there exists no movement by 
the women of the country to secure the records of the truth in 
history aboiit a lost yet sacred cause. We have met here now 
united in our vork for a grand purpose, grand in its origin, 
patriotic in its undertaking and faithful in its administration. 

Time has no power to obliterate from our minds the memory of 
the deeds of heroism enacted during those four years of cenflict 
and death or take from our hearts the devotion they hold for the 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 9 

heroes of the South, from the immortal Lee and Jackson to the 
youngest private in her service. 

It does not do any harm to repeat, often, the historic deeds and 
facts for which North Carolina has become famous. Situated be- 
tween Virginia on one hand and South Carolina on the other, an 
always very modest State, she has never proclaimed her deeds of 
prowess as did the others. 

The first settlement in America was made in 1585 on Roanoke 
Island, N. C. The first white child born on American soil, Virginia 
Dare, was on this Island. North Carolina had the first "Tea Party" 
at Edenton and Wilmington, sometime before the noted one in 
Boston, Mass., and the actors were not disguised as Indians as they 
were, but boldly proclaimed they would not be taxed unjustly and 
threw the tea overboard. She was the first to declare her indepen- 
dence of the British Crown in Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, N. 
C, May 20, 1777, more than a year before it was declared in Phila- 
delphia, Pa. But the grandest of all, and we love to hear it re- 
peated, North Carolina was "First at Bethel, farthest at Chicamauga 
and Gettysburg and last at Appomattox." Look what our State did 
during the war. Out of a voting population of 115,000 we sent 
125,000 men to the battlefield; more than one-fifth (l-5th) of the men 
furnished by the Southern States. It was in the hour of the last 
march of our troops Gen. Lee said, "God bless North Carolina." In 
the late Cuban War, the first man killed in the army, was Lieut. W. 
Shipp, of Charlotte, N. C, in the navy the first man killed was 
Worth Bagley, of Raleigh, N. C. And North Carolina troops placed 
the first American flag on Moro Castle, Cuba. It is stated that the 
first interment in Arlington Cemetery, as we now know it, was that 
of George L. Rheinhart, a Confederate soldier of the 26th and 23rd 
N. C. Infantry. 

North Carolina has attained great things along educational and 
industrial lines; her rank as a manufacturing state is next to 
Massachusetts in cotton and second to none in the manufacture of 
furniture. She has a greater variety of woods and minerals than 
any other State in the Union. Tobacco was first fotind in North 
Carolina and Sir Walter Raleigh took it to England. North Caro- 
lina held the first Peace Conference, in Raleigh, N. C, in 1820, 
Joseph Muntford, of Halifax, N C, (born in England 1724, died 
1776) was tli3 first Mason in America. He was appointed Master of 
the "Royal White Hart Lodge," Halifax, N. C, March 21, 1767. His 



10 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

Lodge erecte'd the first Masonic Temple in the world. It was built 
1769, and is standing now and still in use by the Royal White Hart 
Lodge. The first Summer Normal School ever held in America 
with a University or College was in Chapel Hill, University, N. C, 
in the summers of 1877 to 1888 inclusive. 

Mrs. Cornelia Phillips Spencer, of Chapel Hill, was a potent 
factor in these schools. She attended and reported all lectures. 
This movement led to the Graded Schools of North Carolina. Out 
of six Universities established before 1830, five were in the South. 
North Carolina had the first University in the United States. 
Others had gotten charters but she began work first. In 1865 Capt. 
John Wilkes, of Charlotte, N. C, secured a charter for the first 
NationalBank of Charlotte.the first National bank chartered south of 
the Potomac. Capt. James Iredell Waddell.one of North Carolina's 
noted sons had the unique distinction of being the only man who 
bore the Confederate flag around the world, being in command of 
the "Shenandoah" and kept the flag floating for three months after 
the surrender at Appomattox. 

We are proud of the noble heritage of the Confederacy be- 
queathed to us by our Fathers and our Mothers as well: for the 
women of the Confederacy, though not on the battlefields, bore 
their part no less heroically than did the men. It has always been 
said that without the women of the Confederacy there never would 
have been achieved the glories won by it and hostilities would 
have ceased long before they did. We should be proud to be an 
American and prouder still to be a North Carolinian. 

Again I thank you for your cordial welcome and assure you 
your hospitality will be thoroughly enjoyed. 



At intervals during these opening exercises old 
Confederate songs were beautifully rendered by a 
special chorus of male and female voices, and the 
songs were greatly enjoyed. The benediction by Rev. 
E. H. Davis closed the opening exercises and Miss 
Collier turned the chair over to the State President, 
who declared the convention formally opened and 
ready for business.

The President gave a full account of the years 
work which was approved. 

PRESIDENT'S PvEPOPvT. 



To you, the United Daughters of the Confederacy of North 
Carolina, I extend loving greetings and grateful remembrances. 
Last October in Greensboro, when yoii elected me your President, 
it was the proudest moment of my life, and I consider it the great- 
est honor that coudd have been conierred on me in North Carolina. 
I assure you it has been the desire of my heart to show my great 
appreciation of your act, by my conscientious and faithful work, 
and to see that the rights and privileges of the members are equally 
recognized and respected. I have had my hours of disappointment 
in the work but many more of gratification and thankfulness to my 
cabinet, chairmen, and members of committees. Your names are not 
put on committees jiist to ''look at," but you are all expected to 
work, and please notify your chairman you are. ready for work and 
do not leave it all for her. It is the great desire of your President 
to make this one of the most successful years of our organization 
and with the co-operation and work of every chapter, and each 
member of the chapter, we can accomplish everything we desire. 

I wish to ask and insist upon every chapter officer and member 
reading otir yearly United and State Minutes and studying parlia- 
mentary law. You will find by so doing you can understand and 
do the work of our order in a more systematic and more business- 
like way. If all members would do this, we will find a solution to 
the confusion and mistakes made in our State and general work. If 
you will just study parliamentary law a few minutes or half hour, 



United Daughters op the Confederacy 15 

at each meeting you will soon be familiar with it. "Roberts Rules 
on Parliamentary Law" has been adopted by the U. D. C. and can be 
ordered from any book store. Please, every President of a chapter 
order one and put your members to studying it. Never use the 
term "Civil" in connection with the war between the States and 
please say Memorial Day and not Decoration Day, May 10th. 

Your President has written several hundred letters and postal 
cards this year. She answers all communications the day after re- 
ceiving thern or just as soon as possible, and if you do not get an 
answer, write again as they may have gotten lost in transit. 

It was decided at the State Convention that you should send 
General and State taxes to the State Treasurer, Miss Alice Nelson, 
Greensboro, N. C, who will forward the general tax. Every chair- 
man of State Committees must send all money collected by her to 
the State Treasurer, as we wish the State to have credit for every 
cent collected or given. Some of our oldest chapters did not com- 
ply with this, not even sending their general tax to our Treasurer 
as required to do. 

We now have 83 chapters in the State Division with over 
3,500 members, five having been organized this year by your 
President, with 8 or 10 that may soon become living chapters. The 
following are the new chapters: Sillcrs-Ashford, Clinton; Fort 
Fisher, Wallace; Chalmers Glenn, Leaks ville-Spray; Brierfield, 
Thomasville ; Caswell Co., Yanceyville. Three charters have been 
returned and will have to be sent to our President General if the 
chapters are not revived, and it is possible with two of them, 
Clayton and Cornelius. We now have twenty seven (27) Childrens 
Auxiliaries, seven having been organized since last October. The 
following are the new ones: "Mildred Lee", Albemarle; Winnie 
Davis, Kinston; Davis Coutenaial, Statesville, Wallace Reinhardt, 
Lincolnton; Annie K. Kyle, Fayetteville; , Pittsboro. 

Our State work should take precedence of all other, and our 
most strenuous efforts given to it. The education of veterans' 
descendants, aiding the Soldiers Home, completing the Monuments 
to Hon. George Davis and Henry L. Wyatt, and having painted the 
portraits of General Robert Ransom and Capt. Randolph Shotwell. 
With this work accomplished we can turn our thoughts to general 
work. 

There are six objects which I wish to emphasize: 

1. Maintaining work for educating children of veterans. 



16 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

2. Arlington Cemetery Monument. 

3. Kon. George Davis Monument. 

4. Shiloh Monument. 

5. Forming Childrens Auxiliaries by every chapterin the State. 

6. Wirz Monument. 

North Carolina has a history of being first and we must not fall 
behind in giving to these objects. 

First. Our work is to educate the descendants of our veterans, 
where their parents are not able to give them an education. Quite a 
number of chapters have pledged ten dollars ($10.00) every year to 
educate two girls at the State Normal. Several chapters are educat- 
ing a girl at their home schools. Lei ever/ chapter see if there is 
such a boy or girl in their community, and if they are already at 
school, see if the/ need books or proper clothing. By establishing 
these scholarships we will teach every boy or girl in that school 
it is a great honor to be descended from Confederates. With love 
for the work in our hearts, unselfishness, energy, courtesy, patience 
and the right spirit we can do great things. Our General President 
advises us to have public schools all over the South named for our 
great leaders. Let us remember this and put it into effect. We 
have two girls at the Normal College, Greensboro, N. C, and this 
will prove a monument for the U. D. C's. Send your contributions 
to Mrs. Brodnax, Chairman Education Committee, Greensboro, N. C. 

Second. A monument is to be built at Arlington Cemetery > 
Washington, D. C, which is the old Lee homestead inherited by 
them through the Custises from the Washingtons. 

The U. D. C convention at Norfolk in November decided to 
assume the work of erecting this monument to our Confederate 
dead who lie buried there. Your President pledged $100.00 over a 
year ago for this monument and it ought to be much more, and sent 
to the Treasurer immediately. 

By erecting this monitment, nothing can do more in the future 
to disabuse the minds of the people of thai false idea that we were 
"rebels" and traitors than the fact that after all the bitterness had 
died out, the Government of the United States marked the graves 
of the noble men who fought for their constitutional rights and put 
on their headstones "C. S. A." thus showing they were entitled to a 
place in the National Cemetery. We should now honor them by 
immediately erecting this testimonial. "The Arlington Monument 
Association" lias been formed and is under the direction of the U. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 17 

D. C. Organizers and directors have been appointed from the 
States. Your President asks most earnestly that every chapter in 
the State send some contribution, as we want North Carolina to 
have a fine report for the Atlanta Convention. This work can 
surely fail to appeal to none, for soldiers from all the Confederate 
States lie buried there. Your President is North Carolina's State 
Director. 

Third. We wish to erect a monument to the memory of Hon. 
Geo. Davis, of Wilmington, N. C, who was a member of President 
Jefferson Davis' Cabinet, and the last Attorney General of the 
Southern Confederacy. Mr. Davis was a true and noble son of 
North Carolina and we should honor him by erecting a lasting 
memorial to his beloved memory that will show future generations 
who he was and what he did for the Confederacy. This is a work 
of love that should be taken up by every chapter and the whole 
South. Miss Hettie Jamei of Wilmington is chairman of this com- 
mittee and will gladly receive all contributions. 

Fourth. Shiloh Monument — North Carolina has never done 
anything for this object, but I hope we will begin to work some for 
it now. We have had so much work in our own state and then had 
promised help to other monuments, it was impossible to assist 
Tennessee before now. This Shiloh Monument is not a Tennessee 
Monument but one from the Daughters of the whole South to 
those brave soldiers from every state buried there. Your 
President at Norfolk pledged $50.00 from N. C. for it and you may 
make it more. A fine committee for this work has been appointed. 
Mrs. F. M. Williams, Newton, N. C. is State Chairman and has done 
a good work. 

Fifth. Every chapter in the State is urged to organize a 
Children's Auxiliary. On the training of our children in this work 
will depend the perpetuity of our organization. 

Interest the boys in this also, as they must join the "Sons of 
Veterans" in order to fill their fathers' places. Only by this means 
can we carry on the work of the "U. D. C", the traditions, sacred 
memories, the history of the Confederacy and its heroes and 
heroines. These Auxiliaries have no per capita tax to pay and 
their offerings are entirely voluntary, Their leader is required by 
our general constitution to report to their mother Chapters monthly 
and be under their guidance and to send reports to State Conven- 
tion each year by chapter delegates if their leader does not attend. 



18 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

From death, sickness, and other causes, some of our Auxiliaries 
have not sent reports for two years. I wish every mother Chapter 
would look after this at once and explain why it must be done, as 
they are under their direct supervision and are responsible for 
them doing their duty. If a leader has died, or for some other 
cause the work is lagging, please select one at once. In organizing 
Children's Chapters elect or appoint a leader, and have her apply 
to Mrs. F. M. Williams, Recording Secretary, Newton, N. C, for 
membership blanks for the children who join. These must bear 
same relationship to veterans that daughters do. Have leader keep 
a record of these papers and teach the children Confederate his- 
tory, songs and poems. Any other information desired can be 
asked of Mrs. Williams when ordering application blanks. We 
must have the children interested. Mrs. H. DeB. Wills of Raleigh is 
chairman of this committee. She has done fine work during the 
year, seven Children's Auxiliaries have been organized. 

Sixth. There is another monument that all will take pleasure 
in helping to build, as Capt. Henry Wirz was a true Southerner and 
never swerved from his duty and love of the South; although sorely 
tempted. This monument is to be erected at Andersonville, Ga., 
where he was keeper of the prison. We know we are doing a 
simple act of justice in erecting it, to a man who did his duty 
under adverse circumstances, for which he was not responsible- 
Other States have given to this, and North Carolina will do her 
part. Mrs. Eugene Little, Wadesboro, N. C, is chairman. 

The centennial of the birth of Jefferson Davis, June 3rd, 190S' 
the first and only President of the Confederate States of America, 
was, according to the request of Mrs. W. J. Beham, President Con- 
federated Southern Memorial Association, observed in some of our 
schools. Owing to the fact that so many of the schools were closed 
Mrs. Beham asks that December 7th, 1908, be observed in a way 
appropriate to the important occasion. Your President desires 
every Chapter in the State to arrange fitting exercises for that day. 
Let the one hundredth anniversary of this, our Great Chieftain, be 
a great day in the South. Let it be a day when all Southern people 
will show their devotion to the memory of him — "The one man who 
was made to suffer for all his people." Let the name, Jefferson 
Duvis, President of the Confederate States of America, be upon 
every lip and dwell forever in the hearts of his people. In the 
February mimbcr of the Confederate Veteran, Mrs. Beham gives an 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 19 

outline for a profitable study of the life and character of Mr. Davis. 
It was decided at our last Convention at Norfolk, that a special 
study of the public and religious life of President Davis, soldier, 
statesman, scholar and Christian gentleman, should be introduced 
into all institutions of learning, from the district school, to the 
University during the year 1908. That chapters be urged to place 
pictures of President Davis, Generals Lee and Jackson in every 
school in order that the youth of our land may ever have before 
him these great examples of the highest type of American manhood. 
Pictures have been placed in some schools and medals have been 
offered by Chapters and individuals. The centennial years of these 
men, so near together in purpose and thought during life, was 
celebrated, one in 1907 (Lee) and one on June 3rd, 1908 (Davis). 
Fine pictures of President Davis may be gotten from Art Publish- 
ing Co., 85 Broad St., Charleston, S. C, for $1.00. The Shiloh 
Monument Committee has a fine one of Gen. Lee for $5.00. A com- 
mittee has been appointed with Mrs. H. A. London, Pittsboro, N. C, 
as chairman to see that these ideas are carried out in the state 
schools. Make patriots of them while young. Your President has 
offered five dollars ($5.00) in gold to the pupil of the Charlotte 
Graded Schools for the best paper on "President Jefferson Davis 
and the causes that led to the war between the States." 

Your President would reco mtnend that all Chapters elect their 
officers the first of November or just after our General Convention. 
Send lists of officers elected immediately to State Recording Secre- 
tary and Corresponding Secretary, so they can be sent to General 
Secretary for December minutes. 

It is very necessary that this should be done and retiring 
secretaries send a correct list at once to State Recording and Cor- 
responding Secretaries; as it is highly important to all work to have 
these lists correct in both state and general minutes, and no names 
will be received later than December 1st. It has entailed a great 
deal of hard work on our Recording Secretary by this not having 
been done in the past year, and Chapter Presidents will see that it 
is not neglected another year. As soon as your election is over 
send her a list of the newly eleeted officers and not wait for her to 
write for them. 

At the Durham Convention it was decided that a revised list, 
giving deaths, marriages, removals, and new members, be sent Sep- 
tember 1st of each year, to the Stats Registrar, Mrs. Leo. D. Heartt, 



20 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

Raleigh, N. C, so that state and chapter reports of members may 
agree. This should be promptly attended to, as it will prevent 
much confusion over Credential Committee reports at convention. 
Presidents please attend to this. Remember also that the Asheville 
convention settled the matter, that all Daughters applications must 
be recommended by one or two veterans, or be returned by Regis- 
trar for correction. Your President hopes that this convention will 
adopt the amendment "that all chapters must have their election of 
officers the first week in November." 

If any chapter has historical papers, your State Historian will 
be glad to receive them. It is necessary that we preserve our 
Southern history. They should be sent direct to Miss Cameron, 
State Historian. 

Last year the N. C. Division adopted the Keystone, of Charles- 
ton, S. C, published by the talented Misses Poppenheim, as our 
official organ. It has been of benefit to our members and if every 
chapter would take it, it would be a way in which your President 
could communicate with you and announce important information 
without writing to every chapter. 

The work of our Division has not been all that we hoped for> 
on account of the panic in financial circles, but most of the chap- 
ters have done the best possible. Many are building Confederate 
Monuments in their counties and are thus not able to give much to 
other work. Weldon has just unveiled one that does credit to her 
chapter. The following towns have just or are almost ready to un- 
veil monuments: Kenansville, Kinston, Edenton, Greensboro, High 
Point and Thomasville. It will not be long until every county in 
North Carolina will have a Confederate Monument dedicated to her 
valiant war heroes, both privates and officers. The Graham Chapter 
is building a hospital instead of erecting a monument, in memory 
of their fallen heroes, and it is a fine idea, and calculated to do 
much good and relieve old soldiers and their widows. Lincolnton 
has purchased a building and dedicated it as a Memorial Hall 
instead of a Monument. They will place relics and everything 
pertaining to the Confederacy there. The Virginia Division is 
going to place a large bronze statue of General Robert E. Lee in 
Statuary Hall, Washington, D. C, This makes the first memorial to 
a hiro of the Confederacy ever placed in a United States building 
whose chief claim to distinction is his service to the Confederacy. 
'1 ] ere is already in Statuary Hall one Confederate, Dr. J. L. M. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 21 

Curry, a member of the Confederate Congress, placed there by his 
native state of Alabama. Dr. Curry had other claims to distinction. 
Alabama and Texas are the only two seceded states which are re- 
presented in that Hall. Texas having given one of Sam Houston, 
but he was not a Confederate soldier. Two of our noted Con- 
federate Generals have passed away in the past six months, Gen. 
Stephen D. Lee, Commander of the United Confederate Veterans, 
died May 28, 1908, just before the Reunion of Confederate Veterans 
at Birmingham, Ala. Gen. A. P. Stewart, of Tennessee, died August 
31st One by one the surviving Generals of the Confederacy are 
answering to the last roll call. Only General Buckner remains to 
represent the list of Lieutenant Generals. Both of these Generals 
were brave soldiers and leave a heritage of valiant and faithful 
service. 

At the Norfolk Convention it was decided to cease the bestowal 
of Crosses of Honor on November 1st, 1915. So all Veterans ana 
descendants must secure their crosses by that date. Chapter 
Presidents will please note this fact and make it known in xheir 
counties. 

Chapters should remember unless their members are registered 
with State Registrar they are not in good standing. 

At our General Convention the subject of credentials is always 
discussed. Your President wishes every chapter to have its vote 
this year. In filling out your blanks after the delegates names put 
"proxy State Chairman" or any one you know will be there. Ihus 
we do not lose your Chapter vote. It is most earnestly desired 
that every Chapter will be represented either in person or by 
proxy. Some States that have adopted this have a full vote. 

Your President feels that she must urge you to pay your State 
and General tax promptly in January as required by your constitu- 
tion and not put it off until just before Convention. It makes it 
hard on the State officers and the money is needed to pay expenses. 
Your President has drawn a bill to be presented to our Legislature 
which meets in January, praying it to give the N. C. room m the 
Richmond Museum one hundred dollars ($100.00) a year for its 
maintenance. This does not mean much to the State but it means 
hard work for the Daughters and we have so many other objects for 
which to work. Also one to provide a home for the wives of our 
Veterans at the Soldiers Home in Raleigh. It could be done with a 



22 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

small additional expense. This resolution was introduced by your 
President in Norfolk and endorsed by the General Convention. A 
committee has been appointed who will go before our Legislature in 
January and ask that this be done at once. In other States Veterans 
are permitted to have their wives with them. "What God has 
joined together let no man put asunder", yet our laws do this con- 
tinually. Let us work for this. 

Credentials must be sent to Recording Secretary General 10 
days before the Convention and you are urged not to neglect this, 
as North Carolina must have a full vote this year. Blanks were 
sent to your President and any Chapter that has not received one 
can get them. 

Your President received a pressing invitation from the South 
Carolina Pres. U. D. C, last December to attend their yearly Con- 
vention, but was unable to go. A few weeks ago another kind in- 
vitation came from Mrs. Wright, their President and was accepted 
for December 1-3. 

Your President attended the Reunion of the N. C. Confederate 
Veterans in Winston-Salem in August and thoroughly enjoyed the 
exercises. They were entertained in a grand style, not being sur- 
passed by any general reunion. The old soldiers always enjoy 
these reunions. There was one Veteran there from Charlotte one 
hundred and four (104) years old and he was able to go about and 
enjoy himself. 

Yon must not forget the Henry Wyatt Monument to be erected 
in his memory, being the first soldier killed in battle at Bethel, Va. 
Send all contributions to Mrs. Margaret Etheredge and to no one 
else. 

At the Norfolk Convention a scholarship of $350.00 and a free 
tuition at Teachers' College, Columbia University, New York, was 
given to our General U. D. C's. It fell by lot to South Carolina for 
1908 and 1909. 

The Division owes a vote of thanks to all the newspapers in 
the State who have at all times so generously printed any matter 
for it, free of charge. It has been of great help and benefit in our 
State work, and we hereby thank them most heartily for their con- 
tinued kindness. 

Our President General, Mrs. Stone, has suffered a great bereave- 
ment in the past six months in the loss of an only child, a son. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 23 

Your President extended to her the deepest sympathies of the N 
C. Division U. D. C. May the hand of Him above "temper the 
wind to the shorn lamb." 

Your President cannot bring this lengthly report to a close 
without making a plea for the Randolph Shotwell Monument. If 
there ever was a man who deserved a monument to his memory this 
is the one- During the trying days of the "Ku Klux" he was a 
leader and suffered much for the good of the South He always 
stood firm and wavered not in his love for and allegiance to his 
people, for what he knew to be right. He was driven through the 
streets of Albany, N. Y., in an iron cage and then placed in the 
penitentiary. 

Your President has been requested to speak of the "Southern 
Literary Messenger", edited by Warren W. Phelan and Ludlow 
Sinclair Smyth. This was once edited by Edgar Allen Poe. It is 
an illustrated monthly and strictly Southern. You are asked to 
assist this great work by subscribing to it. 

At the Norfolk Convention $5.00 was pledged for the "Mrs. 
Jefferson Davis portrait" from N. C. Division and was sent to New 
York. 

On motion of Mrs. Shannon at the Norfolk Convention, it was 
decided after Arlington Monument was completed, to erect one to 
our great General Jos. E. Johhston. 

Your President desires to thank her cabinet and chairmen of 
all committees who have given their faithful and untiring assistance 
in the Division work. Some might have done more. To the 
Chapter officers and individual members of the U. D. C, thanks are 
returned for all good work done and some of the smaller Chapters 
deserve much praise. 

Much more could be said, but when I get to talking or writing 
on the great subject of our Confederate work, I remind myself of 
the farmer's wife who talked all the time— day and night. Her 
husband waked up about three o'clock one morning and she was 
still talking away for dear life. "Oh, Sal!" he said, "Sal, are you 
talking yet, or again?" 

Finally, my dear Daughters, as North Carolina furnished more 
soldiers to our armies than any other State, let us see that the ranks 
of our Chapters of the U. D. C. bear testimony to this fact. See to 
it that every eligible woman and good worker has an invitation to 
wear the red and white of her birthright with us, to join her 



24 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

energies with ours, to preserve the past of our land, so rich in 
memories of glory and heroism. We rely on the support and co- 
operation of every individual U. D. C. to carry on this work as the 
plan has now been presented to you. We have had a successful 
year's work and your President hopes she will inspire a like con- 
fidence in you by her faithfulness as your presiding officer. 

Respectfully submitted, 

SALLIE YATES FAISON. 



The Recording Secretary gave her report which 
was approved. 

REPORT OF RECORDING SECRETARY. 



Madam President, and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

The year of 1908 has been one of steady growth in the ranks of 
the U. D. C. There are now enrolled on the Recording Secretary's 
book 85 Q. D. C. chapters aad 21 children's chapters. Of these, five 
have been chartered since our last convention: Fort Fisher Chap- 
ter, Wallace; Sillers-Ashworth Chapter, Clinton; Chalmers Glenn 
Chapter, Leaksville-Spray; Brierfield Chapter, Thomasville, and 
Caswell County Chapter, Yanceyville. D. H. Hill Chapter, Raleigh, 
and Bay River Chapter, Stonewall, have been stricken from the 
rolls. Bay River Chapter was chartered but never organized. The 
following are the Children Chapters placed upon the books since 
my last report: Mildred Lee Chapter, Albemarle; Winnie Davis 
Chapter, Kinston; Davis Centennial Chapter, Statesville; Annie K. 
Kyle Chapter, Fayetteville; D. H. Hill Chapter, Raleigh, and Wal- 
lace Reinhardt Chapter, Lincolnton. The last named has been in 
existence for several years, but only just reported to the state. 

Your Recording Secretary has had a very busy but most 
delightful year's work in your service, for it has brought her in 
touch with so many of her sister Daughters, who share her enthus- 
iasm in the work so dear to us all. She has written 521 letters and 
375 postals, ha^ sent out 885 U. D. C. application blanks and 435 
children's application blanks. Has issued also the following 
children's certificates: Gastonia Chapter, 10; Newton Chapter, 2; 
Conover Chapter, 1; Fayetteville Chapter, 12; total 25. I would urge 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 25 

on those having charge of Children's Chapters to have the children 
obtain these certificates as soon as possible before the present sup" 
ply is exhausted, as it is doubtful if any more will be ordered. 

In conclusion, I would like to emphasize the great importance 
of the president of each chapter seeing that a list of her newly 
elected officers be sent at once to the state recording and corres- 
oonding secretaries. This should be the duty of the retiring presi- 
dent and secretary. There will be an amendment placed before you 
during this convention asking that all elections be held in Novem" 
ber, and I not only hope that you will vote for it, but that you will 
have the list sent at once to me. I would earnestly beg each dele- 
gate to impress this upon her mind and see that it is done. So 
much depends upon a correct list appearing in the state minutes 
and the work of getting them out is delayed by chapters not 
answering this question as soon as the letters are received. 

And now, to each and every one of you, my dear Daughter 

friends,let me extend my most hearty thanks for the great kindness 

and consideration you have ever shown me while I have had the 

honor to serve you in my humble way as your recording secretary. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FANNIE RANSOM WILLIAMS, 

Rec. Sec. 



The Corresponding Secretary next read her report 
which stood approved. 

REPORT OF CORRESPONDING SECRETARY. 



Madam President, Daughters of the Confederacy: 

If the work of this office were as quickly done as a report of it 
is made, the office were indeed a sinecure. 

Your Corresponding Secretary has written during the year two 
hundred and ninety four (294) postals and fifty three (53) letters. 
The expense of the office has been: for postage, two dollars and 
seventy-five cents ($2.75), express on stationery, twenty-five cents 
(25). 

With thanks to the division and my fellow workers for their 



26 



Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 



courtesy and the trust they have given me. 

Respectfully submitted

United Daughters op the Confederacy 29 
report of the historian of the n. c. div. u. d. c. 



Madam President and Daughters: 

The report of your Historian is more of work done than of 
results accomplished. Last March I wrote personally to the His- 
torians of every chapter, or, if there was no historian, to the pre- 
sidents of the seventy-nine chapters that then constituted our 
Division, asking them what historical work they had done during 
the past six months, and urging upon them the necessity and im- 
portance of securing personal narratives from the men who served 
on the firing line while they are still here to speak. To these 
seventy-nine inquiries I received twenty-five replies. The last two 
coming the last week in September, and of the twenty-five, only 
five reported any historical work as done by their chapter. 

So far as any reports have been made to me, we have put on 
file in the Secretary of State's office in Raleigh, this year only 
twenty two historical papers, which makes our whole number there 
but forty-seven. 

The Chairman of the Historical Committee of the general order 
wrote to me for statistics of our historical work, and with shame of 
face I could only tell her what I have just reported to you. The 
Secretary of the State Historical Commission made a similar re- 
quest and had to hear the same story; which represents a whole 
year's work of 3500 women, who are bound by the terms of ourCon- 
stitution to the preservation of historical material. We can only pre- 
serve it in one way, we must first get it, or there will be nothing to 
preserve; and soon there will be nothing that we can get. The men 
are going so fast, ob, so fast. Here in my own town, which sent all 
her sons to the front in the fighting days, there are only eight men 
left alive of those who wore the grey and of those, two were in the 
Junior Reserves. They are hurrying away from us, and when they 
are gone whatever was left unrecorded, is irretrievably lost. 

Oh women, who listen to my words today, why, oh, why will 
you not give heed? These men of whom I speak were your fathers 
a ad brothers, your husbands and sons; these men whose unequalled 
feat of arms were at once the wonder and admiration of the world! 
Why, oh, why will you not strive to save the shining fragments of 
their matchless story while the men who wrote it in their own 
heroic blood are yet here to tell what they, and they alone, can 



30 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 



tell, and what all the world will care to hear. 

Today there are eighty-four chapters in our Division, and over 
3500 members. Think what a wealth of historical material would 
be ours if each member would secure but one single paper through 
the coming year. 

Will you not try to do this while it is possible? 
Respectfully submitted

POSTSCRIPT TO THE HISTORIAN'S REPORT. 

The Hiitorian begs to be allowed to add a postscript to her re- 
port to do justice to the Gastonia Chapter, and their admirable 
historian, which have done more work in the last two years than 
any other chapter in the Division. Two days after my report was 
mailed, I received a list of eleven (11) historical papers from 
Gastonia that had been attained by the most praise worthy persis- 
tance and personal effort on the part of their splendid Historian, 
Mrs. Jas. P. Culp. Last year Gastonia reported 16 papers, this year 
she adds 11 more, thus having more than half of the papers we have 
in safe keeping, to her credit. Cannot some of the other chapters 
do as well, and dispute with Gastonia the place of honor that she is 
now entitled to by her well doing? Who will be first to enter the 
arena?

The Convention then adjourned for luncheon. 



FIRST DAY— afternoon session. 

At 2:30 o'clock the Convention was called to order 
to continue the regular routine work. When the re- 
port of committee on Constitution and By-Laws was 
called the chairman presented a set of Amendments, 
which not having been received by the chapters 30 days 
before Convention as set forth in the Constitution, 
were set aside, ana those sent out from the Recording 
Secretary's office were taken up and voted on separately, 
as follows: 

Amendments to the Constitution. 



ARTICLE III. 

Add. "All application blanks must be signed by one or two 
veterans who know the eligibility of the applicant." 

This was carried. 

ARTICLE IV. 

Sec. 1. Insert after "to be elected annually" the words, "on 
afternoon of second day" also change the word "held" and add so 
as to read "said convention to convene;" also after "October" add 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 51 

"of each succeeding year, unless for good reasons the President 
iiids it necessary to change the date." The connected clause will 
road: "To be elected annually on afternoon of second day of con- 
vention, said convention to convene on second Wednesday of each 
succeeding October, unless for good reasons the president finds it 
necessary to change the date." 

A motion was made to change the time of annual 
meeting in this article, but could not be acted upon at 
this convention, being unconstitutional. The Amend- 
ment as originally presented was then carried. 

Sec. 2. All chapters must hold their annual election of officers 
at their November meetings, and the Recording Secretaries of the 
past year are required to at once notify the State Recording and 
Corresponding Secretaries of the result of said elections. 

This Amendment was carried without any dis- 
cussion. 

ARTICLE V. 

Sec. 3. If a member of a chapter withdraws without a good and 
sufficient reason given to chapter executive committee, said mem- 
ber must return her U. D. C. certificate to the chapter. 

When the abovi article was read it caused much 
discussion, and it was then decided to substitute for it 
the following from the General U. D, C constitution. 

Sec. 2. A member in good standing of any chapter, desiring to 
change her membership, shall be entitled to receive from her chap- 
ter a demit, certifying that she is a member in good standing — 
which, if presented within six months, shall make good her mem- 
bership in any chapter to which she may be acceptable. 

The following was then voted on and carried: 

ARTICLE VI. 

Sec. 2 After "10 cents" add "for State and 10 cents for General 
Taxes" also strike out "per capita." Sentence will then read, "Each 
chapter shall pay into treasury of State Division 10 cents for State 
and 10 cents for General Taxes for each member." 



52 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 
Crosses ot Honor. 

ARTICLE VII. Each chapter should see that all veterans in its 
vicinity be given aa opportunity to obtain a Cross of Honor. 
Crosses can only be bestowed on four days: January 19, Lee- 
Jackson day; May 10th, Memorial day; June 3, President Davis' 
birthday and Aug. 23, North Carolina's special day. The bestowal 
must take place according to U. D. C. Cross of Honor rules, but af- 
ter having complied with them, veterans can be given their crosses 
whenever they call for them cr at annual reunions. In reporting to 
State Recorder, bestowal of crosaes, only give one of four legal days. 

ARTICLE VIII. 

Sec. 1. All chapters should endeavor to have under them a 
Children's Auxilliary, presided over by one of their members as 
Leader. 

Sec. 2 Each child must nil application blank with same certif- 
icate as for a Daughter, said blank being received when party wish- 
es to join regular U. D. C. Same rules of eligibility are required in 
both cases. 

Sec. 3. Children are required to pay no taxes. A record of 
their application must be kept by the Leader, but not sent to State 
Registrar. Leaders must also report monthly to mother chapters, 
and send yearly reports to State convention. 



Change Articles VII and VIII of present Constitution to IXand 
X. 

The following- amendments were then offered to 
the By-Laws and carried. 

I move to amend the By-Laws by adding By-Law No. 10 to 
read: That all printing, of what ever kind to be done for State of- 
ficers or chairman of committees must be sent to the Recording 
Secretary, and by her forwarded, with price of same to the Presi- 
dent, who will decide if work is necessary, and approve before 
printing is done. Mrs. M. S. Willard. 

I move to amend the By-Laws by addingBy-Law No. 11 to read: 
That fifty votes shall constitute a quorum of the convention of the 
North Carolina Division. Mrs. Gordon Finger. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 



53 



The next motion caused much discussion and was 
at last tabled. 

I move to amend By-Law No. 5 by adding after the word con- 
ventions. "The Treasurer shall be required to give bond in the sum 
of $5000." - Mrs. Finger. 

The report of the Executive Committee was then 
read and approved

The Memorial Arch report in the absence of the 
Chairman, was read by the Corresponding Secretary. 

MEMORIAL ARCH REPORT. 



Madam President and United Daughters of North Carolina: 

As Chairman of the Memorial Arch Committee the convention 
will find a detailed account of this work in the last minutes of the 
Convention, therefore 1 do not think it necessary to report it here. 
The progress is gradual since November 1907, as far as contributions 
are concerned. The Treasurer reports $17.68 received since that 
time. She also reports that the funds raised previous to her in- 
cumbency was deposited with the American Trust Company. 

As your Chairman is not the custodian of the funds she is unable 
to give the exact amount with interest that is now on hand. This 
can be ascertained from the General treasurer. 

The pink granite Arch gateway which was presented last year 
by Dr. Joseph Hyde Pratt, State Geologist, and the Balfour Granite 
Company, of Mt. Airy, hat- been received and is safely deposited at 
the Cemetery, awaiting the removal to its permanent situation and 
this to be determined upon by this convention. It seems to be the 
concensus of opinion that the Memorial Arch should be of Gray 
granite the Confederate Grays. If this is decided upon, the pink 
gateway will not be in harmony with it. This matter has been ful- 
ly discussed and the last and the best solution of the difficulty has 
been suggested that this gate be placed in the opposite side of the 
Cemetery where it joins Oakwood Cemetery, therefore I must 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 59 

suggest that this Convention turn over the gateway to the custody 
of the Johnston-Pettigrew Chapter U. D. C. of Raleigh to dispose of 
it in this way. This will relieve the U. D. C. of any obligation to 
pay for the taking down and placing on cars which amounted to 
seventy-five dollars, all of which is now due with the exception of 
ten dollars which has been most generously contributed by Dr. 
Pratt on this bill — sixty-five is yet to pay, which has not been set- 
tled on account of being no funds on hand with which to pay the 
same. I will here state that the Southern railway gave free trans- 
portation to Raleigh to the gateway for which we are abundantly 
grateful. An experienced marble expert informs me that gray gran- 
ite comes cheaper and is quite as good as the gray over which we 
ail should rejoice so that we may use the gray in memory of the 
Confederate gray. 

Experts on sione work say that an inscription on each stone 
will mar the beauty of the whole structure, but that bronze tablets 
placed on each pilaster with names of chapters inscribed thereon will 
be dignified and in keeping with the whole structure. May I suggest 
that this matter be left with your committee which has been ap- 
pointed by the president regarding the contracts, form and inscrip- 
tions. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. E. E. Moffitt, 
Chairman Memorial Committee. 



At the close of the report Mrs. Leo D. Heartfc, of 
Raleigh, stated that as it was s?en that the pedestrian 
gateway of pink granite would not harmonize with the 
archway of pink granite, ; :he Johnston Pettigrew 
Chapter offeied. if the convention would present the 
gate to them to assume all expenses incurred regarding 
it. This generous offer was accepted with many thanks 
by the convention, and thus the gift of the gate was 
made to the Johnston Pettigrew Chapter. 

A very interesting discussion regarding the arch 
then followed. As Mrs. Moffitt had stated in her report 



GO Minutes op Twelfth Annual Convention 

that the architect had decided that the inscribing of 
chapter names and date on the stones of the arch by 
carving could not well be done, but that copper plates 
bearing a number of names be used, the chapters hav- 
ing pledged money declared that ohey disapproved of 
this plan and several chapters stated that they recalled 
the amount given by them. At this point the following 
motion was made, ^nd after being thoroughly discussed 
passed. 

I move thai with the consent of the Chapters that have con- 
tributed, that the money for the "Memorial Arch" be applied for a 
"Home forthe widows and wives of the Confederate Veterans to be 
added as an annex to the Soldiers' Home in Raleigh." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Hanter G. Smith, 

Fayetteville, N. C. 

During the session telegrams of greetings were 
sent to the Virginia Division, then in convention as- 
sembled at Manassas and to Mrs. Stonewall Jackson, 
also one to Mrs. R. P. Dalton, whose son had been 
very seriously injured by being thrown from his horse. 
A letter was ordered written Miss Rebecca Cameron 
regretting her absence. 

A communication from Mrs. Walke was then read, 
in which she a /iced that a small silk North Carolina 
flag be taken to the General Convention at Atlanta, 
and when the State's name is called the flag be pre- 
sented at the rostrum, this flag to be left with the 
entertaining chapter. It was decided to send the flag 
to Atlanta and the State president was empowered to 
purchase and present it, A request from Atlanta that 
each state bring a tree, in order to start a Confederate 
grove, was also agreed to. The long leaf pine was 
chosen to represent this state and Mrs. Eugene Little 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 

kindly volunteered to procure same and forw ird bo our 
State president to carry to Atlanta. 

Invitations were next read from the Woman's Club 
to a play and reception on Thursday night, also to a 
reception to be given by Dr. and Mrs. Robinson Wed- 
nesday, both of which were accepted with thanks. 
The convention then adjourned till Thursday morning. 
SECOND DAY— morning session, 

The Convention was called to order Thursday 
morning at 10 o'clock and was led in prayer by Rev. 
G. S. Watkins. A telegram from the Virginia Divis- 
ion, in reply to one of the greeting sent them was then 
read, followed by a letter of good wishes from the 
President General, Mrs. Cornelia Branch Stone. 

MRS. STONE'S LETTER. 

To The United Daughters of the Confederacy of N. C: 

Your President Mother sends greetings and all good wishes to 
the Daughters, for a successful, happy and harmonious meeting. 

Remember that our dear boys of the sixties stood side by side, 
braving and enduring all, for the sake of principle, and for the de- 
fense of home and Southland, and let us stand, too, firmly, and in 
peace and unity, forgetting self, as they did, and working for one 
common purpose, the preservation of the truth of Southern history, 
and the continued love, reverence, faith and loyalty to the men and 
women who made that history so glorious, and pure, and left it to 
us as a precious heritage, to cherish and defend. 

May God bless you in this work, is the present prayer of your 
friend. 

Cornelia Branch Stone, 

President General, U. D. C. 

It was ordered by the Convention that a letter be 
sent Mrs. W. M. Parsley, regretting her absence from 
among us. 



62 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

The reading of the Committee- reports was next 
taken up. 

Miss Hattie James a report of work clone by Hon. 
George Davis Monument Commmittee and urged that 
steps be taken towards immediate completion, and the 
report was approved. 

GEO. DAVIS MONUMENT REPORT. 

Madam President, Daughters of the Confederacy: 

It is with a grateful heart that I behold once more, the pleasant 
and many of them, familiar faces before me today. With warm 
greetings we assemble, to report our work of love, during the past 
year, and to hold sweet intercourse one with the other. Although 
our hearts at nearly every annual meeting, are saddened over the 
memorial of some faithful Daughters, who, having finished their 
course, have gone to their rest, yet, while we miss their dear faces, 
realizing that with many, it is only a little while' before us, we en- 
joy the reunion of those left. Soon, too, we will follow them across 
the river "rest under the shade of the trees" with Jackson, Lee, our 
beloved President and all of the rest of the "Noble Army of Mar- 
tyrs" who have gone before, including, alas! to many, father, hus- 
band, son or brother, who gave their lives to that cause so true to 
every Southern heart. Though our beloved banner has since been 
furled, the cause yet lives in our hearts and God grant may still do 
so, after we have passed away, and always live in the hearts of the 
children's children of the Daughters, on whom I trust the 
mantel of that love will rest until time is no more. Such a cause 
cannot be lost any more than a drop of water, but will wend its 
way so surely to the "Ocean of Eternity." In no way can it more 
firmly be retained, and the history of those eventful days be pre- 
served, and taught to coming generations, than in erecting monu- 
ments and inscribing, on marble or bronze, the deeds of the great 
men who served in the Confederacy. Whether statesmen or soldiers 
wearing the Gray, whether wielding pen or sword, they gave up 
ther fortunes, in many instances, and often a profitable living and 
well earned laurels to follow the fortunes of our beloved Confeder- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 63 

acy. Prominent among such, stands the name of the Kon, George 
Davis, a man most highly esteemed as a polished Christian gentle- 
man, a man of a strict integrity, who, in his native State, had been 
a star in his profession, before those stirring days. Honored be- 
cause of his honor, to his keeping was entrusted the fate of his own 
State — trusted because he would submit to no compromise that 
was not truly honorable to the South. All know too well though, 
that even his eloquent tongue could not gain honorable terms of re- 
conciliation at the memorable Peace Conference, or stop the inevi- 
table war brought on by jealotisy and persecution. Hence, North 
Garolina followed her sister States, but with the comforting con- 
sciousness of having avoided haste and done all she could to avert 
the danger. If Mr. Davis could not effect an honorable reconcilia- 
tion, no other man could have succeeded. Having been thus hon- 
ored by his own State, he was appointed a member of President 
Davis' Cabinet and became the personal friend and adviser of our 
martyred President, He was afterwards Attorney General for the 
Confederacy, in which capacity he was serving when thp surrender 
of our beloved Lee was made at Appomattox, to overwhelming odds 
to stop the further sacrifice of the best life blood of the South. To 
the memory of that noble son of North Carolina, Hon. George Davis, 
as you all know, we are endeavoring to erect a monument in Wil- 
mington his native city, for it is an oft repeated story, having 
been brought before the Convention for several years. We say in 
Wilmington, first, because it is his native city, and secondly, be- 
cause the Cape Fear Chapter was the pioneer in the movement, and 
has raised a larger amount towards it than the rest of the State. 
For these two reasons, the right will probably be acceded to that 
city. I have made a second appeal in behalf of the monument, to 
every State Division, taking the semi-circle from New York to Ore- 
gon and Washington including Mexico, putting it to others, as not 
only their just right and privilege to assist, but on account of 
his being Attorney General of the Confederate States, a common 
duty. So far, Mississippi is the only State to respond, and the 
President of that State expressed regret at their inability to render 
any help at present, as they were doing for the educational work 
and were anxious to have something to honor Stephen D. Lee. 
Since my previous remittance to Miss Nelson, this year, I have 
turned over to her $5.00 from the Johnston-Pet tigrew Chapter of 



64 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

Raleigh; $1 from the Bell-Battery Chapter, at Edenton; $1 froi: 
Anson Chapter at Wadesboro, and I have now with me received too 
late to forward to the treasurer, before the Convention $2 from the 
Joshua- Vick Children Chapter at Selma; $1 from the Henry Wyatt 
Chapter at Selma, and $10 from the Camp of the Cape Fear Veterans 
of Wilmington. Added to this, a letter just received from 
Harvey of Edenton, one of the State committee, informs me that 
she had just sent $5 to Miss Nelson from the Winnie Davis Chil- 
dren's Chapter. The Cape Fear Chapter has contributed !?50 to the 
State Committee Fund, which has also been forwarded to the State 
Treasurer, making in all $75 toward the State fund, since that remit- 
ted last winter. Since arriving here, have received $2 from Mrs. M. 
E. Hoke for the Lincolnton Chapter. Mrs. Harvey writes also that 
she will help more after her return from Goldsboro, when she will 
have a musical, solely for the Hon. Geo. Davis Monument. I have 
written to some Chapters in the State from whom I have never re- 
ceived any contributions, many, though, have sent to Mrs. Parsley, 
Chairman of the Cape Fear Ceapter Committee, as that Committee 
was organized before that of the State, and had already sent out ap- 
peals throughout the State. Were all of those outside of the State, 
as well as those in it to whom I had appealed to respond generous- 
ly, we might begin at once to erect the monument. As stated in a 
previous report, it is very evident that North Carolina must com- 
plete the work herself, as the second appeal to the other States has 
met with no better response. Some may come yet as it was too 
early for their State Conventions, but I tried to write near that time 
that it might not be forgotten. If the Chapters in our own State 
will only make another effort, I think we will soon be able to ac- 
complish our object. Truly it would be a matter of just pride to 
the Old North State, if she could point to the monument, as almost 
exclusively, as her own memorial, to one of North Carolina's great- 
est sons. Respectfully submitted.

a good showing this year. As you know at Norfolk last year the U. 
D. C. assumed the work of erecting this monument. We must work

68 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

As I have stated before, the first soldier interred in Arlington 
Cemetery was a North Carolinian. As the Federal Government has 
recognized the Southern Confederacy and set aside a beautiful plot 
of ground for the cemetery, it behooves the U. D. C.'s of every State 
to erect a mo.inmea! there to show the world that we existed and 
are proud of it. How long shall the many thousands of visitors 
who throng Arlington Cemetery find, a^ they now do, only young 
trees growing and the grass kept smooth and green in that Confed- 
erate section, by the United States Government? There is no shaft 
or mausoleum there, nothing but a vacaut mound surrounded by 
little white headstones. 

On the heights of Arlington amonument of noble proportions and 
of artistic design should be put, as a fitting memorial of the nation 
that is dead; it will speak to all the nations of the world of Robert 
E. Lee and those soldiers who nought without reward, and were 
content to go down to nameless graves, for what was to them the 
preservation of free institutions. We as Southerners have a right 
to be proud of the course taken by our fathers in the war between 
the States, "to secure the constitutional rights they had coined out 
of their sacrificers, hardships and their blood for our benefit." The 
records of the Confederate soldiers are equal to any in the world, 
their battles will be the marvel of men as long as the world lasts. 
"Poor is the country that boasts no heroes but beggared is that peo- 
ple who, having them, forgets." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Sallie Yates Faison. 
State Director for Arlington Mon. 



The reports of the Educational Committee of the 
State, and of the J ormal scholarship were by khe able 
chairman, Mrs. Brodnax, and were received as read. 

STATE NORMAL AND EDUCATIONAL REPORT. 

Madam President, Daughters of the Confederacy: 

The Educational Committee of the North Carolina Division of 
the United Daughters of the Confederacy continues to maintain 
through the liberality ot the chapters throughout the Division, two 
scholarships at the State Normal and Industrial College. At the be- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 69 

ginning of the fall term we entered two young ladies, one from 
Newton and one from Tarboro, thus representing both sections of 
the State. The treasurer will give you a list of all the chapters that 
have contributed to this work, and the amount. 

We feel very much gratified by the interest and liberality shown 
by the Daughters in this noble work and I earnestly hope their in- 
terest in it may increase and all the chapters in the Division will 
take part in it, which would enable us to have three instead of two 
scholarships another year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. J. G. Brodnax, 
Greensboro, N, C, Oct., 1908. Chairman of Educational Com. 



At Mrs. Brodnax's request a motion was passed that 
all applications for the Normal scholarships be sent 
the chairman of the committee not later than July 1st 
of each year. The application to be made out on a 
Daughter's blank and recommended by a veteran. 
Said, blank to pass through the hands of he local chap- 
ter for approval. It was also decided that a girl once 
winning a scholarship should hold same till her gradu- 
uion, provided she made good use of her opportunities. 
A rising vote of thanks was given to Mrs. Brodnax for 
her untiring efforts in this work. 

The Shiloh Monument report was next read by the 
committee chairman and approved. 

SHILOH MONUMENT REPORT. 



It is with regret that the chairman of the Shiloh Monument 
Committee must report such a small contribution to the fund for 
that monument, but at the same time she recognizes the fact that 
this has been a hard year financially every where, and most chapters 
have on hand work that is nearer to the hearts of the members. 

Soon after my appointment on this committee, I wrote to all those 
associated with we on this work asking their co-operation, and also 



70 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

sent letters to nearly all chapters, which did not have members on 
the committee. I have received contributions from the following 
chapters: 

Bell Battery Chapter, Edenton 3.00 

Wm. Dorsey Pender Chapter, Tarboro 2.00 

Geo. B. Anderson Chapter, Hillsboro 5.00 

Cape Fear Camp, Wilmington 5.00

Respectfully submitted,

Mrs. R. R. Cotton was now given a few moments 
in which to speak in behalf of the Stonewall Jackson 
Industrial Training School. She asked for the endorse- 
ment of the work and this was heartily given. The fol- 
lowing motion was then made and passed: 

I move that the members of the U. D. C, as far as possible, join 
the Stonewall Jackson Association. 

Mrs. R. L. Rybukn. 

The report of the Henry Wyatt Monument was 
read by Miss Etheredge and approved. 

HENRY wyatt monument report. 



Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

As chairman of the Henry Wyatt Monument Committee it gives 
me pleasure to report to you the progress made by the United 
Daughters of North Carolina, to do honor to the memory of that 
brave young soldier, Henry Wyatt, whose life was the first sacrific- 
ed for the cause of our beloved Confederacy. 

Our fallen hero did not suffer in vain, his life was not wast- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 71 

ed, for the memory of his bravery is like the perfume of Mary's 
Albaster Box; its fragrance now fills our State, penetrating the souls 
of her sons and daughters, inspiring a holy patriotism. 

It is a long stretch of years from June, 1861 to June 1907, when 
the Henry Wyatt Chapter at Selma took the first steps towards a 
movement to erect some suitable monument to him, whose name 
that Chapter bears. 

In October at the Greensboro Convention this movement was 
favored by the United Daughters there represented and heartily en- 
dorsed by our president, so this work was made a State work, truly 
a work of duty and love. We have probably established the fact 
that we were first at Bethel and are proud to claim Henry Wyatt as 
a soldier of the old North State, the first slain in battle, one who 
bravely offered his life for the sake of the honor of our Southland 

Is it not now our duty and pleasure to do honor to the name of 
our "first at Bethel," should we not show to future generations that 
we do appreciate and have cause to be proud of the young hero of 
Bethel? 

It has been the desire of this committee to not only obtain 
funds sufficient for this monument, but to inspire patriotism in the 
hearts of our people and awaken them to the fact that we have too 
long been silent as to the honor we owe the memory of our Confed- 
erate dead. 

In behalf of our work an appeal has been made to every chap- 
ter in North Carolina. Every surviving member of Co, C of the 
Bethel Regiment, to which Henry Wyatt belonged, has been inform- 
ed of our purpose. Numerous letters have been written to those of 
our State we thought interested in oiir work, and to the Tar Heels 
in other states. 

All these efforts have, we hope, not been in vain for now in the 
spring time of our work we feel that seed of interest have been 
sown that may bring forth a plenteous harvest ere we have toiled 
long. 

Twenty-seven chapters have responded to our plea. We think 
this a fine beginning and most heartily appreciate the interest man- 
ifested by our co-workers in this noble undertaking. 

The following are the names of the chapters and the amounts 
contributed:

Daughters of the Confederacy, let us not now grow weary, but 
start the new year with renewed energy, firmly resolved to show 
honor to the memory of Henry Wyatt. 

Will not every chapter that has had no part in this work now 
pledge themselves to lend a helping hand, and those that have been 

so faithful will you stand by us until the monument to Henry 
Wyatt is no longer a fond hope, but a proud realization? 
Respectfully submitted 

Margaret Etheredge 
Chairman Henry Wyatt Mon. Com. 

A vote of thanks was given to Mr. Mitchener for 
his aid to the local chapter in this work, and Mrs. Vick 
was requested to deliver the thanks, It was urged that 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 73 

all moneys from chapters be sent direct to Miss Ether- 
edge, as she alone was authorized to solicit funds from 
the chapters for this monument. The business session 
now adjourned, so as to allow the presentation of the 
portraits of General Robert Ransom, Colonel Samuel 
McDowell Tate and Captain John Phifer Young, after 
which exercises recess was taken until 2:30 o'clock. 



SECOND DAY— AFTERNOON SESSION. 

At the opening of the afternoon session Mrs. 
Bridges stated that she wished to say that the money 
for the Coi. Wm. L. Saunders monument had be given 
by bis relatives, and that so kindly contibuted by the 
chapters had been returned to them. The following 
motion was then made and agreed to by the chapters: 

Those chapters of the convention who have contributed to the 
Wm. L. Saunders monument be asked to turn the money over to 
Miss Hettie James for the George Davis monument. 

Mrs. Creecy. 

The Chapel Hill Monument report was then read 
by Mrs. Kenan, together with a letter of approval of 
the work. This report was approved as read, with the 
exception that each of the Daughters pay fifty cents to- 
wards it each year. 

CHAPEL HILL MONUMENT REPORT. 



Madam President, and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

At our State meeting last October in Greensboro, the suggestion 
was made to build a handsome memorial, to be placed on the campus 
of the State University, to the student body, who laid aside their 
college duties and joined our Southern army in 1861-65. 

It is said the University furnished 1,009 soldiers for this cause, 



74 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

many of them were hardly grown, but like their forefathers, were 
brave, faithful and true, willing to gfve their lives as a sacrifiice for 
principle. 

Four hundred of these soldiers were killed, some of them gift- 
ed as few men are, both in personal and intellectual attainments. 

With our Banner furled, and their fond hopes gone, the remnant 
that was left, have been and are still passing away. 

These men have a history, that must be left to posperity, their 
lives are worthy of every honor. "Their like again the earth will 
scarcely see." 

In chronicle, or on the tuneful lyre, none greater admiration 
will inspire. 

The State University now has over 700 students; every year 
the/ come and go; with this historic monument standing silent and 
alone, appealing to their noble sentiments of courage and patrio tic 
love of home, our Southern history will be read with more interest 
so that our sons can challenge the world, and refute any charge re- 
flecting upon the honor of our cause. 

The Daughters of our State, have the sacred privilege of paying 
this tribute to them. 

Let us build this monument, and build it quick, for time is 
passing and we are losing opportunities. 

Mrs. Faison appointed me chairman of the University monu- 
ment committee, and wrote me she had given me a strong committee. 
I need not tell you I felt gratified and our president took so kindly 
to the suggestion, for my heart is in this work, not alone for love 
of the Southern soldiers, but also for pride of the living. 

As soon as I was notified of my appointment, I wrote every 
member of my committee, telling them we had only preliminary 
work for this year, laying plans, etc. 

1 then wrote Dr. Venable, president of our University, as a mat- 
ter of courtesy, telling him what we proposed to do, and would be 
glad to have him, with the board of trustees, co-operate with us. 
The idea seemed to appeal to him, also to the trustees, as you will 
see from a communication. 

My committee will need the help and interest of all chapters 
in the division for this work. I consider this the most important 
and beautiful we have ever undertaken in our own State; it will 
take patience and we must devise means of raising money. 

To begin with, I ask most earnestly cliat each president of the 



United Daughters op the Confederacy 75 

chapter collect from each member of their chapter 25 cents in Janu- 
ary and June each year, making the assessment 50 cents. 

Every Daughter will gladly pay it I believe if called upon. I 
usk every chapter to have some kind of an entertainment in the 
spring and fall to add to this fund. In this way oiit of the 82 chap- 
ters representing 3,500 members, we will have a good beginning. 
Our committee think we should be able to build this monument in 
a few years and we should try and raise theneeded amount at once. 
We leave that to you and if any suggestions are to be made we 
would gladly hear them. 

As the chapters pay in each assessment, the chapter president 
can forward a check payable to me, as chairman of the Universty 
monument committee, I will return receipt for same. 

Daughters of North Carolina our work is one of love but it re- 
quires both patience and determination, and we are not a band to 
be discouraged. I am one of your senior members now, but I was a 
little girl during that period. I did not then suffer the heart aches 
and anxieties that older members of my family did.butl know noth- 
ing but to love my Southland, its sons and daughters. Every day I 
live I realize what these men were to our country, and if we hope 
for our boys to be worthy of such kinsmen, let us place their noble 
deeds before them. This monument will inspire State pride and I 
am sure will do good, besides it is a tribute we owe those soldiers 
boys. 

Mrs. James G. Kenan, 

Chairman Universaty Mon. Com. 

LETTER FROM TRUSTEES. 

Mrs. James G. Kenan, Chairman Committee Q. D. C. 

Wallace, N. C. 
Dear Mrs. Kenan: 

At the meeting of the trustees .June last, I presented your letter 
with regard to the memorial proposed by the U. D. C. The trustees 
were nuich pleased by the suggestion by the North Carolina divis- 
ion and will be glad to co-operate with you in any way. It was 
suggested that a very appropriate memorial would be a memorial 
gateway to the campus, I think it would be best for some one of 
the ladies on the committee to visit the University and decide up- 
on the proper form of memorial. 

We shall be very glad to have you come here and it will give 



Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 



me pleasure to aid you in any way in my power. 

Very truly yours, 
Francis P. Venable, President.

The convontiton then adjourned to meet Friday 
morning. 



THIRD DAY— morning session. 

The convention was opened with prayer by Rev. 
W. R. Farris promptly at 10 o'clock. The first work of 
the morning was the reading of and passing on the 
amendments to the General Constitution to be brought 
before the convention at Atlanta. The convention de- 
cided that her delegates vote that no U. D. C. officers 
be salaried, but that officers mentioned in the amend- 
ment be allowed a limiced amount of expenses. They 
also voted to strike the word "lineal" out of the Con- 
stitiiution. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 79 

The amendment to not allow women of Northern 
birth to become Daughters onmarryingConfederate vet- 
erans caused much discussion, but at last the vote 
stood to admit them. 

A letter from Mrs. Behun, laying out a plan by 
which to raise money for the Jefferson Davis Monu- 
ment in New Orleans, was read, and the matter was 
left for the Daughters to decide at the convention, 

A letter telling of a monument that it was decided 
to try to build in honor of the Immortal Six Hundred. 
It was moved and carried that we receive this as infor- 
mation, and delegates can report to their home chap- 
ters. 

The report of thf Children's Auxiliaries was given 
by the chairman, Mrs. Willis, and approved. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON CHILDREN'S AUXI- 
LIARIES. 



Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

Early in February I sent out a request to all the Chapters U. 
D. C. in North Carolina, a request to make strenuous efforts to or- 
ganize auxiliaries to the chapters composed of the young people of 
the locality where the chapter is. To this request I received a 
number of replies— not as many as I hoped or expected; consider- 
ing the fact that we have in North Carolina more than 80 chapters, 
U. D. C. During the month of February I had about 25 replies to 
my circular. Many of these reported that they had already auxi- 
liaries in working order and doing good work. Some reported that 
children were interested in U. D. C. work and would soon organize. 
Others again wrote that the chapters were weak and unable to do 
anything in this line at present. In the following few months cards 
from several chapters have been received reporting progress in the 
effort to interest the young people in Confederate history, especial- 



80 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

ly during the present year, in the life and service of President Da- 
vis, whose centennial we celebrated on June 3rd, 1908, in accord- 
ance with resolution passed by the general contention U. D. C, 
1907, in Norfolk. Va. 

Wo hope that pictures of President Davis and of our peerless 
leaders, R. E. Lee and "Stonewall" Jackson, will be placed in every 
school room before the end of 1908. Of course every chapter or 
auxiliary, which has the name of a distinguished soldier or veteran 
will wish to possess, besides those of Davis and Jackson, a picture 
of their chosen hero. This is a laudable ambition and wc hope it 
will be carried out in every instance. The study of the lives of 
these patriots, as great example of the highest type of American 
manhood — as soldiers, statesmen, scholars and Christian gentlemen — 
is the most conspicious work our Children's Auxiliaries are doing 
this year, as it is their centennial anniversary, and our people, 
young and old, are dwelling with love and pride on the glorious and 
unstained record of these heroes whose fame "shall go sounding 
down the ages" exciting successive generations to enoble their glo- 
rious deeds, and their lives unstained with a single blot of shame. 
Mrs. Henry London, of the Winnie Davis Chapter, Pittsboro. is 
chairman of the committee appointed to push this work. In the letter 
of our State President to the North Carolina chapters, issued early 
in the year, she emphasizes the necessity of organizing the Chil- 
dren's Auxiliaries to the chapters, in order to interest them in U. D. 
C. work, and training them so that they may be prepared to take our 
places when we veterans have passed away. The study ol Confeder- 
ate History is the most important in all the work we put into their 
hands, for without a knowledge of the true history of the Confed- 
eracy they would not be fitted to carry on the work; therefore we 
lay special stress on this line of instruction. We must in every 
possible way interest them in learning the truth. We were sorry 
that some of our most flourishing chapters failed to report their 
auxiliaries at the convention last year in Greensboro. It was dis- 
couraging to hear "the Julian Jackson Chapter— no report," "the 
Suthern Stars — no report," "Robert E. Lee — no report;" "Lee Jack- 
son—no report." The Washington Grays keep their place as the 
banner auxiliary of the State; but several of the others are pushing 
them hard, and deserve credit for their perseverance under difficul- 
ties. Several leaders have written to inquire about the best way to 
start an auxiliary. We can only say, make the exercises at your 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 81 

meeting interesting, in order to attract the young people and when 
tliey are once interested they will love to come, and will soon love 
the work of trying to help the older soldiers, who are left, and 
keeping green the graves of those who are gone. At each meet- 
ing some interesting papers or short extracts about Confederate he- 
roes might be read, either by the leader or by some of the children 
having prepared it before hand as it might be too much of a task 
for a little girl or boy. There are many stories of heroes in the 
Confederate Veteran., and in other papers, thai would be suited for 
such occasions. The Regimental History of our North Carolina 
soldiers and their deeds in the war between the States has many 
thrilling stories of these heroes. This is published in five volumes 
by the State of North Carolina, and is probably in every library in 
the State. And there are many other books which an enterprising 
leader will find to entertain her young folks meetings. A little 
book which has been published recently— The Trial and Death of 
Henry Wirz — is a thrilling narrative that will touch the hearts of 
all and make them admire the heroism of that unfortunate man, 
and others like him who suffered a cruel death for doing his duty 
as an officer of the Confederate Army. I would advise those Daugh- 
ters who mean to do something real useful in this work, of training 
the young people to take our places in Confederate work, to watch 
the Sunday papers for articles by Capt. S. A. Ashe, Mr. O, W. Black- 
nail, and such writers, who can and do give us in their valuable 
communications the true ideas of the Confederacy whichSouthern- 
ers should hold and endeavor earnestly to teach to all their read- 
ers, especially their children. 

I wish again to call the attention of this convention to the ex- 
pediency of continuing the use of the Keystone as theOrgan of our 
Society in North Carolina. From the evidence I can gather it seems 
that the chapters who have the Keystone are enjoying an advantage 
which the others have not, as they are monthly in touch with each 
other and cannot but feel more interest in what the Daughters are 
doing all over the State. I appeal to all those who have felt this 
benefit to endorse this recommendation of the Keystone, and to 
vote for its continuance as our Organ. 

Respectfully yours, 

Helen DeB. Willls, 
Chairman of Com. on Children's Auxiliaries.

Mrs. London, chairman of the committee on the 
study of the life of President Jefferson Davis in our 
schools, read a plea on this subject and urged this study, 
also the placing- of the portrait of our only Confederate 
President on the walls of every public school house 
over the land. 



MRS. LONDON'S REPORT. 



It is most important that we should have the life of the South's 
great chief taught in the schools, and to have the picture of Presi- 
dent Jefferson Davis placed in each school where practicable. Thus 
giving an object lesson that cannot fail of its effect from year to 
year. As chairman of this committee, I began in my own town and 
county. 

The Winnie Davis Chapter offered prizes for the two best essays 
on the life of President Davis. This proved io be a great success, 
for many children in Chatham county studied and strove to win 
these prizes. I have written to the chapters with suggestions on 
this subject. 

I wish here to impress on the ladies the necessity for teaching 
the young especially about these great men. For unfortunately, 
there are living some men and women who did not admire Mr. Da- 
vis greatly, and therefore are lukewarm in his praises. This should 
not be so. Ladies, when we cease to extol Jefferson Davis, we un- 
dermine the cause for which our brave men fought, and we depre- 
ciate the value of our organization in keeping pure and bright the 
memory of the heroic deeds of our forefathers. 

So, put pictures of President Davis in the schools, See that a 



84 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

history of his life is in ever/ school library and never let any one 
say a word before the young to make them think there ever lived a 
greaisi.- man and greater martyr, the first and only President of the 
Southern Confederacy, Jefferson Davis. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Henry A. London. 

Mrs. Shannon was now given the right to read her 
Assistant Historian's report and this was ap- 
proved.

nual convention, the number of delegates such chapter expects to 
send to said convention. Mrs. Marshall Williams. 

A motion being then made to adjourn, it was voted 
on and carried, 



THIRD DAY "AFTERNOON SESSION. 

On the re-opening of the Convention at 2:30 o'clock,

UNVEILING OF PORTRAITS. 

On Wednesday at noon occurred one of the most 
interesting events of the convention, that of unveiling 
and presenting three handsome portraits from the 
North Carolina Division to the North Carolina Room in 
the Museum at Riohmend Of these portraits, that of 
General Robert Ransom was given by the chapters of 
the State, that of Col. Sam McDowell Tate was present- 
ed the division by bis family, while that of Capt John 
Phifrr Young, was the gift of the Children's Chapter 
at Concord, which bears the young hero's name 

Gen. Ransom's was unveiled first, the presentation 
speech being made byCapt. Tom. W, Slocomb and the 
veil being drawn by Mrs, John P, ifount, of Newton, a 
member ofthe chapter which bearsGen. Ransom's name. 

CAPT. SLOCOMB'S ADDRESS. 



Madam President, United Daughters of the Confederacy, La- 
dies and Gentlemen: 

I extend my most cordial felicitations to this lovely array of 
loyal daughters of North Carolina, and in the language of Tiny Tim 
say "God bless you every one," "For way down in my heart I have 
a feeling for you." "Carolina, Carolina, Heavens' blessings attend 
her." 

A country without a history is a wilderness, and a history 
without its heroes is a myth. It is the pride or all North Carolin- 
ians to know that our grand old State has a great and glorious past, 
and a history replete with heroic deeds of her loyal sons and 
daughters. At the roll call of duty North Carolina always answers 
'Here.' She demonstrated this in the Revolution with Great 
Britian, in the patriotic action of Mrs. King's Tea Party at historic 
old Edenton, beside her inland sea. She re-echoed it back from 
the rugged hills of old Mecklenburg when her sturdy sons re- 
nounced their allegiance to King George, and proclaimed to the 
world that North Carolina is a free, sovereign and independent 



90 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

State. She thundered it back with her guns from the historic 
battle fields of Moore's Creek Bridge, King's Mountain and Guilford 
Court House- In the war between the States her record is known 
and read of the world, for she stood at the head of the column of 
the boys in gray during the memorable days of the "sixties" and 
sealed wi}h blood her devotion to her cause on every battle field 
from Big Bethel to Appomattox; and when our starry cross went 
down in blood and tears on that fateful field and all was lost, she 
stood by the bier of our perished hopes with the devotion of a 
Theban at the grave of Epiminondas. When the war cloud lifted 
and she stood desolate, amid wreck and ruin wrapped in the 
habilaments of sorrow and woe .when hops had deserted her and 
fled, did her children diseri her ia har extremity? Nay, 
verily! When with outstretched hands and pleading eyes she 
turned to her children, her faithful daughters took once more their 
harp from the willows, and with a prayer for their dear old mother, 
wooed hope back again from her hiding place, and the Confederate 
soldier, storm swept and battle scarred, stood once more in the 
breach. With brave heart and willing hands he laid deep and well 
the foundations of her social, political and commercial life upon 
which she has reared this magnificent superstructure of peace and 
prosperity which is our rich heritage to-day. — And now v/ith her 
face to the morning, with her heart attuned to the music of the 
spheres, with head erect and stately step, she is pressing forward 
abreast of her sisters to the consummation of a greater and grander 
destiny. 

With bared head I now recall the name of Ransom, a name 
loved and honored in North Carolina, and one whose deeds are 
written in the hearts of his countrymen. 

Robert Ransom was the second son of Robert Ransom, Sr., and 
wife Priscilla Whitaker Ransom, and was born in Warren county 
February 12th, 1329. In his boyhood he attended an old field school 
in his native county, presided over by William Eaton. In 1846, at 
seventeen years of age he received an appointment to a cadetship 
in the United States Military Academy at West Point, remaining 
there four years, and graduating in 1850. After his graduation he 
was commissioned a second lieutenant and assigned to the cavalry 
branch of the service, and served for ten years on our Western 
frontier on the plains of New Mexico, Indian Territory and Kansas, 
attaining the rank of Captain. At one time he was Adjutant of the 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 91 

1st United States Cavalry, commanded by Colonel Edwin V. 
Sumner, afterwards a Major-General in the United States Army. 
General Ransom was twice married, his first wife was Miss Minnie 
Hunt, of Washington, D. C, and after her death he married Mrs. 
Kate Lumpkin, of Georgia. 

When he saw that war between the North and South was in- 
evitable, he resigned his commission in the United States Army, 
and with his wife and little children left Fort Wise, Indian Terri- 
tory, for North Carolina, five hundred miles across the plains in- 
fested with hostile Indians. Arriving in his native State, he re- 
paired at once to Raleigh, and offered his services to the State of 
his birth. Governor Ellis commissioned him Colonel of the 1st 
North Carolina Cavalry which, by his superior military knowledge, 
he soon drilled and disciplined into one of the famous regiments 
that went from North Carolina. Our own Wayne county had the 
proud distinction of furnishing Company "H" to this splendid 
regiment under the command of the lamented Thomas Rufiin whose 
honored name our worthy local chapter bears. 

I had the honor to serve for a short time in his command. He 
was spare, erect, and of graceful figure, quick and alert in move- 
ment, and looked the ideal soldier. He was a superb horseman — 
the most splendid rider I have ever seen in the saddle. Calm, 
poised, self-ccntainei under danger and excitement, he never 
rashly sacrificed his mcr., but where duty led he knew no fear. 
One of the most daring feats of bravery that came under my 
observation during the war was his gallant and heroic conduct in 
steadying a wavering regiment at Malvern Hill. Many years after 
the war we were discussing our campaign, and I mentioned the 
incident to him without giving the name of the place, told him 
what an inspiration his conduct was to me that day, a youth just 
emerging from his teens, and asked him if he recollected. He 
replied, "Yes, I remember. It was at Malvern Hill just before 
sunset." "But," he said, "It was a call of ditty, and I simply 
obeyed it." This was the manner of man he was. 

We are glad to have with us to-day one of his accomplished 
daughters, whose gracious presence adds pleasure to the occasion, 
and we extend to her our most cordial greeting. 

Cornelia, proud mother of the Gracchi, when asked for her 
jewels, pointed to her children and said, "These are they." North 
Carolina can point with pride to her devoted and heroic sons as 



92 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

her jewels, and name Robert Ransom one of her brightest. I knew 
him well and am glad to number him as one of my friends. He 
has long since been gathered to his fathers and sleeps now in the 
cemetery at New Bern by the wife of his youth. God rest him. 

And now, my dear Madam, I have the honor to present to you 
his portrait, a striking likeness of the loyal citizen, the most 
admirable gentleman, the gallant and knightly Major-General 
Robert Ransom. I know you will preserve it and cherish it as "an 
apple of gold in a picture of silver." 

Mrs. Eugene Little, of Wadesboro, a daughter of 
Col. Risden T. Bennett, appointed by the N. C. Division 
to accept these portraits, responded to Capt Slocumb 
as follows: 

MRS. LITTLE'S RESPONSE. 



Daughters of the Confederacy, Veterans, Ladies and Gentlemen: 

The State, in memory of a distinguished citizen and officer of 
high rank, presents the portrait in oil of Major-General Robert 
Ransom executed in fidelity to the original. 

He was conspicuous in moulding his regiment into hardened 
soldiers in short order. The First Regiment of North Carolina 
Cavalry was equal to any regiment of horse in our service. The 
material composing the companies was the very best of our youth. 
The Colonel who gave the command, coherent in drill, in camp, on 
the march, in the clash and stroke of swords, the vehemence of 
shots, the delivery of weight of collision, was probably the best 
disciplinarian in our service. So insistent was he, upon Taps, 
Tattoo and every call of discipline, that now and again his com- 
mand nuirmured. But he was right, in the outset of our war, to 
harden the raw material into coherent bodies. 

He was a graceful man in person and step, mounting his horse 
with a flexibility of body and limb, very rarely seen. 

We are proud of him and it is fitting now to pay the reward to 
honesty of purpose and clear intelligence. The artist has caught 
tho inspiration of his handsome features. 

To the Daughters of the Confederacy of North Carolina, this 
great officer seems especially near and dear, for we feel the gallant 
Father lives again in his gallant daughter, precious to us all. 



United Daughters op the Confederacy 93 

Mr. Jos. E. Robinson presented the portrait of 
Col. Tate, and the veil was drawn by that gallant sol- 
dier's daughter, Miss Sue Virginia Tate. 

MR. ROBINSON'S ADDRESS. 



Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

The peculiar honor that brings me before you at this hour is so 
distinctive and distinguishing that I am utterly at a loss for words 
to give expression to my deep appreciation of the favor bestowed 
upon me in selecting me for the duty with which I am commission- 
ed. And while you, Daughters of the Confederacy, with heroic 
perseverance and a patriotism that is sublime, are devoting the 
years of your passing to treasuring the sacred memories of the Lost 
Cause, commemorating its immortal heroes and teaching the chil- 
dren of our Southland the truths of history, let me say to you 
and of you, here and now, that while the valor of the men who 
wore the Gray has wreathed around in a halo of glory "the storm- 
cradled nation that fell," the women of the Southern Confederacy, 
who stamped the coin of character upon the souls of its soldiers, 
have shed a luster en its history which time can never dim, and 

"On brightest pages penned by poets and by sages, 

Will go sounding down the ages, 
'Till the last syllable of recorded time." 

And as I stand in your presence this moment and the hallowed 
memories to which all these services relate come trooping back 
across the years, "bringing tears with them, as old memories will 
when they come back withered" words are inadequate to give ex- 
pression to the sentiments that "swell at rny breast;" for I do say 
this, that if ever love and admiration for sublime courage and 
heroic endurance burned pure and bright in the heart of man, it 
burns in my heart ever for the unapproachably glorious woman- 
hood of the Southern Confederacy, who in the suspenseful solici- 
tude of their desolated homes sustained the crucible of war's rude 
alarms and heart-crushing fatalities with more than Spartan endur- 
ance. 

The memory of a wife's or mother's heroic benediction may 
have made Lsonid.is, fearlessly facing the Persian hosts in the pass 



94 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

of Thermoplae immortal, where and of whom it is chiseled in the 
face of the rocks of that lowly pass; 

"Go stranger, and to Lacedoemon tell, 
That here, obeying her behest, we fell," 

That many a hero of the Lost Cause, when all else seemed fail- 
ing, was given renewed courage and peerless daring by the memory 
of a wife's or mother's parting kiss and enshrining blessing we are 
proud to believe. 

This is not the language of extravagance nor the feverish va- 
porings of grief. It is the tribute of Truth to a heroism that was 
sublime in fealty to a cause that was eternally right. The highest 
tribunals of our jurisprudence have vindicated the theory of gov- 
ernment for which the Confederate soldiers fought. The maturer 
wisdom of these latter years wins even from our former foes of in- 
telligence and honor the frank confession that we interpreted the 
constitution in accordance with the teachings of the fathers of the 
Republic. The whole world bears willing tribute to the splendor 
with which that unequal contest was waged through all those 
stormy years, that knew neither fatigue nor fear. 

When the zealous historian of the future shall make cold and 
unemotional comparisons of the great battles of the world — and 
measures greatness by darirg and mortality, he will write high 
above them all— Gettysburg, 

When sentiment and admiration shall seek to pencil the feat- 
ures of the ideal soldier, the kings and captains of all time. — the 
Alexanders, the Caesars the Bayards, the Galahads, the Wellingtons, 
the Napoleons -will furnish but a faint foreshadowing of the glor- 
ious flower of them all, who wore the Confederate gray. 

It is my proud privilege to present to this Division the picture 
of one of these— Col. Samuel McDowell Tate, of Morganton, of the 
Sixth North Carolina Regiment. He was of those who were first at 
Manassas ond furthest at Gettysburg; and of the furthest in that 
greatest of all battles he was furthest, for it was he who planted the 
flag of his regiment on the stone wall on "Cemetery Hill." He v/as 
the mettle of those who were first to volunteer and endured to the 
end, and turning their faces to the future from the last sad tragedy 
at Appomatox beat their broken swords into plow-shares and start- 
ed in to reclaim our devasted fields that had been sown in the salt 
of their people's tears; and having given the world an unparalleled 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 95 

example of heroism in the armed combat, they furnish a no less 
striking lesson in the determination and industry with which they 
have won back our inheritance and have placed the old North 
State in the very forefront of the nation the admiration of the 
world. 

His record as soldier, patriot and citizen is secure in history 
and a proud inheritance to his posterity. It is meet that the man- 
ner of such men should be preserved in portraits, that generations 
yet unborn in this Southland of ours may study their splendid 
countenances, and, as before shrines of religion, thank God for the 
example of their lives to emulate and pray to be vouchsafed the 
benediction of like rounded and heroic characters. Ithank God,too, 
that this portrait so exquisitely done — was painted by a Southern 
woman, a North Carolina girl— Mrs. Marshall Williams, of Faison, 
who must have inherited the genius of accuracy and expression 
from the martial soul of her heroic father, himself a Confederate 
soldier, the late Captain L, T. Hicks, of Duplin count/. 

Replying to Col, Robinson, Mrs. Little said, 

MRS. LITTLE'S RESPONSE. 

The memory of Colonel Samuel McDowell Tate is very precious 
to the people of North Carolina. Born of sterling parentage, he 
lived in honorable esteem in that Piedmont region, which has given 
to our public life an unusual number of gifted men. He rose to 
the headship of a gallant regiment and was often mentioned in dis- 
patches for his chivalrous bearing in action. Endowed with an 
accurate judgment and a courage for all enterprises, however ap- 
palling, he lived in the confidence of his people and died with the 
plaudits of those who kept the faith. Of such citizens a State 
should be constantly proud. This portraft is the gift of his devot- 
ed family, and every device of skill and effort of honorable en- 
deavor should be employed to maintain his influence. 



Mrs. J. P. Allison, the Leader of the John Phii'er 
Young Cbilderns chapter presented the gift of these 
noble children in the touching words, after which *he

veil was withdrawn from the features of this young 
hero, by his sister, Mrs. A. L. Smith. 

MRS. ALLISON'S ADDRESS, 



Madam President, and Daughters of the Confederacy: 

At the first sound, "To arms," the call of our beloved South for 
soldiers to do battle in a righteous cause, among many others of 
the noble youth of our fair land, who responded eagerly, to this 
clarion call, was one, a Cabarrus count/ boy, who came from the 
school-room, a child in years, (only 15) but a man in mind and 
stature, of dauntless courage and splendid physique, Ke entered 
the service as a private in the ranks of Company B., in the grand 
old Seventh North Carolina Regiment, State Troops. Honored and 
beloved by all who knew him, of recognized ability, he filled, in 
rapid succession, every office in his company to the captaincy at 17, 
and was recommended for the office of colonel, his commission 
only awaited the passing of his 18th birthday, which never came — 
for on the blood/ field of Chanceilorsville his brave young life was 
laid on his country's altar — aged 17. — In behalf of the John Phifer 
Young Chapter, Children of the Confederacy, of Concord, of which 
Chapter I have the honor of being leader, I present to the N. C. 
Division U. D. C„ a portrait in oil of Captain John Phifer Young, 
in whose honor the chapter is named. This portrait which is to 
adorn the historic walls of the North Carolina room of the Con- 
federate Museum at Richmond, Va., was painted by Miss Mattie 
Dowd, of Charlotte, and is a perfect copy of a fine portrait of Cap- 
tain Young by V/m. Carl Brown. The Children of the Chapter, and 
its lsader feel great pride in perpetuating the memory of this boy 
hero. 

"Young as the youngest, who donned the gray, 

True as the truest that wore it, 
Brave as the bravest he marched away, 

(Hot tears on cheek of his mother lay), 
Triumphant waved our flag one day — 

He fell in the front before it. 

Firm as the firmest, where duty led, 
He hurried without falter; 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 97 

Bold as the boldest lie fought and bled, 

And the day was won — but the field was red — 

And the blood of his fresh young heart was shed 
On his country's hallowed altar." 

Mrs. Little in accepting this portrait, spoke as 

follows: 

"Come to the Bridal Chamber death, 

Come to the mother when she feels 

The first time her first born's breath. 

Come in consumption's ghastly form, 

In earthquake's, in ocean's storms, 

Come when the heart beats high and warm 

With a banquet dance, with song and wine 
And thou art terrible. 
The pain the knell the pall the bier 

And all we know or feel or fear 
Of agony are thine. 

But to the hero, when his sword hath won the baltle 
for the free 
Thy voice seems like a prophet's word, 
And in its hollow tones are heard 
The thankfulness of millions yet to be." 
"Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not for 
of such is the kingdom of Heaven." 

It is rare to find the most inflexible coitrage in a youth. Pel- 
ham of renown, held the palm of big performance. 

It was Disraeli who said "Genius when young is divine." 
Many little children are enthused by the virtues of Captain John 
Phiter Young, whom the malice of fortune doomed to death in the 
crisis of his country's struggle. It seems a bloody sacrifice when 
all but honor is gone. It seems so painful to perish in the last 
round of hosts, so gracious to serve that moment in the exultation 
of victory. But "they are the children of the brave, the cherubim 
of death." 

Arnold Von Winkelreid, after a full day of cut and thrust, 
battle axe and spear, won the battle of Sempach by gathering the 
Austrian spears in his body while exclaiming "have a care of my 
wife and children." If every noble action were a trophy the Sid- 
eral world alone could give room to our hostages. 



93 Minutes of Twelfth Annual, Convention 



SOCIAL FEATURES OF THE CONVENTION. 



No truer word has ever been spoken than that 
which makes "Old Southern hospitality the type of all 
that is genuine, and that welcomes the coming, speeds 
the going guest." Typical in every particular was the 
hospitality shown to the Daughters of the Confederacy 
by the people of Goldsboro during the convention of 
the North Carolina Division in that city. So warm 
was the welcome that the very air was full of it, and 
young and old vied with each other in making the true 
Southern hospitality known and felt. In every enter- 
taining home the host and hostess made their guests 
feel the genuineness of their welcome, and it was with 
feelings of sadness that Saturday morning dawned. 

On Tuesday night the handsome home of Mrs. 
George L. Kirby was thrown open to the delegates 
and an informal reception tendered them, a reception 
where old friends might renew ties formed at previous 
conventions, and where new delegates might receive a 
welcome into the midst of Daughters. The genial 
hostess was assisted by her daughters and with grace 
and ease made all the strangers welcome within the 
borders of Goldsboro. During the evening most 
enjoyable refreshments were served by a host of fair 
young girls, who assisted the hostess. 

Wednesday at noon the aldermen of Goldsboro, 
through the Thomas Ruffin chapter, served a delicious 
luncheon to the members of the convention. 

On Wednesday night Dr. and Mrs. M. E. Robinson 
gave a very swell reception in honor of the town's 
visitors. Here it was that the gentlemen lent their 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 99 

presence to iihe occasion and added greatly to the en- 
joy men i of the evening. Among the number were ex- 
Governor Aycock and ex-Lieut. Gov. Prank Winston 
who joined in the patriotic songs that made the hours 
pass merrily away. One of the features of the occasion 
was the presence at a rather late hour of Adelaide 
Thurston, who attended the reception after having 
given a performance at the theatre. 

The dinner hour on Thursday saw the Daughters 
wending their way to the court house green, wheie the 
Thomas Ruffin Camp of Veterans had prepared a real 
old-time barbecue dinner, and which was served by 
them in the genuine picnic style. Of all the enter- 
tainments given the Daughters. there was none which 
so touched their hearts as this one, when the dear "old 
boys of 61-65" served a dinner and waited on their 
guests in very many instances themselves. 

During the afternoon of Thursday, after a very 
long session and late adjournment, Mrs. B. P, Griffin 
served a delightful tea in her apartments at theKennon 
Hotel. Everything was most daintily beautiful and be- 
spoke the elegant taste of the charming hostess. 

Thursday saw 'he delegates and their hosts and 
hostesses assembled in the rooms of the Woman's Club, 
where they watched the perfoi mance of a most enjoy- 
able and amusing play given by local talent for their 
benefit. During the performance beautiful girls flitted 
hither and thither dispensing delightful refreshments, 
At the close oflthis entertainment the Daughters hied 
to the armory , where a dance was given to the young 
folks. It was opened however by a grand march in 
which all the delegates took part, being led by Mrs. 
I. W. Paison, cf Charlotte, State president, and Miss 



100 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

Sue Collier, president of the entertaining- chapter. 

Friday saw the closing exercises of the occasion 
and every spare moment was given to festivities. A 
most elegant four course luncheon was given by the 
chamber of commerce at noon. The gentlemen formed 
a receiving party of their own, to bid the ladies weJ 
come, while other men passed from side to side waiting 
upon their fair guests. Bunches of red and white car- 
nations were presented as souvenirs to each and every 
guest. Nor were the Elks to be a whit behind in the 
way of entertaining, for the hour of five saw the ladies 
all meandering to the beautiful home of this organiza- 
tion, where a most cordial welcome and delicious re- 
freshments awaited them, 

During each and every one of these entertainments 
the soul stirring strains of the Italian orchestra added 
much to the enjoyment of every one present. 



REPORT OF ATLANTA CONVENTION. 



BY MRS. I. W. FAISON, STATE PRESIDENT. 

Nieces and grand nieces of veterans were allowed to be admit- 
ted into the ranks of the U. D, C. for the next year, at least. 
Veterans' wives who were of Northern parentage, widows of North- 
ern born men who fought in the War Between the States and their 
descendants, are to be still allowed to join the Daughters. 

Three new offices were created, Third Vice-President 
Gsneral, Registrar General and Historian General. 

The Committee on education was made a standing committee. 

The date of the General Convention was changed to the third 
Wednesday in October. Crosses of Honor can be given to veterans 
and veterans' descendants on the same day, but the bestowal of all 
Crosses will cease November 1, 1910. Many of the older Daughters 
graced the Convention with their presence.

taining chapter three weeks before each Convention, the number of 
delegates that will attend. Do not wait for some one to write and 
ask about this matter. It is imperative so homes may be provided 
for the delegates.

last year. We have voted annual contributions for the education 
of the children of veterans. We have sent $10 GO for the Arlington 
Monument, and will promise a contribution for the Wirz Monu- 
ment. There only remains the Hon. George Davis Monument, 
which I hope will be considered at an early date. We had made 
airangemcnts to celebrate the 3rd of June, but the funeral of a vet- 
eran at the same time prevented. We gave $29.00 in Christmas 
presents to veterans. Three daughters and three veterans have 
passed away during the year. God rest them.

Remarks— The Chapter is indebted to Mrs. Thomas Murphy for 
one hundred dollars, part of the proceeds of an entertainment 
which required a great deal of energy and perseverance on her part. 
A contribution of $25.00 was obtained from a fine concert under 
the direction of Miss Julia Crouch. Miss Bessie Henderson secur- 
ed from two moving picture shows and some friends the sum of 
$65.00. One of Salisbury's merchants, Mr. Saleeby, most generously 
gave the Chapter the profits of his ice cream parlor for three days 

the ladies of the Chapter serving the cream to the customers. 

This with the addition of a few gifts amounted to $72.02. We hope 
the monument to the Confederate Soldiers of Rowan County will 
soon be erected and unveiled. It is almost similar to the Balti- 
more monument and is a bronze group, on a granite pedestal, de- 
signed by the celebrated sculptor, F. W. Ruckstuhl, and is a mag- 
nificent work or art. For this monument the Chapter has been 
working patiently and untiringly for several years. The members 
of the Chapter are gratified beyond measure, that their diligence 
and persistence are to be so splendidly rewarded. The work for the 
monument has been a long continued labor of love. 
Respectfully submitted,

Remarks — The first work of the fiscal year was the Christmas 
carrying of stockings filled with good things for the veterans in 
the Soldiers' Home, by the ladies of Johnston Pettigrew Chapter. 
On. Christmas night a Committee of the ladies went out with fill- 
ed stockings for those not in the hospital, and full bags to hang at 
the head of the beds of those who were being cared for in the 
wards of the hospital. Harmless fireworks that could be used in- 
doors were taken. The old men were delighted with them and the 
ladies were happy to have bean able to bring the cheer of the 
Christmas tide into their lives. 

The birthdays oi Lee and Jackson were appropriately celebrat- 
ed, the exercises being held in the Capital. The address by Maj. 
H, A. London, of Pittsboro was a perfect eulogy, and inspiring 
Southern music was rendered by the A. & £1. College band. Crosses 
oi Honor were presented that day. Crosses of Honor were also 
presented on Memorial Day, after the oration by Rev. Francis 
Osborne. The day was a perfect one and ail present love to recall 
that Dr. Peter E. Hines, the grand old Confederate surgeon, long an 
invalid, was give a the strength to grace the day the last time he 
could give the benediction of his presence to a patriotic gathering 
before he answered the last call to the bivouac in the skies, 

The Chapter takes deep interest in the proposed memorial to 
Henry L, Wyatt of Edgecombe, who was the first Southern soldier 
to give his life for the cause of the South. A babecue netted $102 
which was sent to The Wyatt Memorial Committee. 

On the celebration of the birthday of Jefferson Davis the Chap- 
ter had one of the most notable days in its history. It was its good 



United Daughters op the Confederacy 107 

fortitne to have as the orator, Capt. Thomas W. Mason who spoke 
eloquently of the career of the President of the Southern Confed- 
eracy, and thrilled the old soldiers and the oihers who had the 
good fortune to hear him.

Remarks — Most of our work has been in Chatham county. We 
send delicacies to sick veterans, and clothes to the needy. The 
Winnie Davis Chapter, early in the year, offered prizes of $6.C0 for 
the two best essays on the "Life of President Davis," written by- 
students in the schools of Chatham county. This being to stimulate 
the study of Confederate history. It required much study and 
research, for unfortunately, the common histories give a limited 
knowledge of this great man. So I was not surprised to receive 
letters asking for additional information on this subject. Our prize 
was offered for students over the age of 15 years, and one under 15. 
We had a beautiful time June 3rd. Capt. S. A. Ashe, of Raleigh, 
delivered the address. Crosses of Honor were given. A fine din- 
ner served the veterans, by the chapter, every veteran being seated. 
After dinner the two prizes were presented with an excellent 
speech by Superintendent of public schools of our county, Mr. R. 
P. Johnson, in which he dilated on the necessity of study of Con- 
federate history. We will offer prizes next year also. 

The last and very interesting portion of the day's exercises was 
the 5 minutes talk of the veterans. They enjoy these reminiscences. 
One man after refusing to speak, suddenly got up and said: "I 
must talk in this experience meeting. If I don't talk, I'll bust." 
And there was a roar of laughter. And he did talk well, and 
entertainingly. 

V/e have organized a Children Chapter, Auxiliary to the Winnie 
Davis Chapter, this fall.

FINANCIAL REPORT: 

Remarks — The work of "Granville Grays" chapter, during 1908 
has been remarkably active and successful and it is a source of con- 
gratulation to report that we are in position to place an order for 
a handsome monument, which we hope to unveil, with imposing 
ceremony in May, 1909. 

Four years ago the "Granville Grays" Chapter organized, with 
the special object of erecting a Confederate Monument to the 
memory of Granville soldiers, conspicuous among whom were the 
•'Granville Grays." As soon as our chapter was enrolled, numer- 
ous appeals for contributions reached us from many states, as well 
as from North Carolina for causes all seeming praise-worthy and 
deserving support. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 123 

With a small number of active workers and a new chapter, it 
was hard to respond to many appeals, impossible to respond to all 
so we decided to help the veteran in his need at home and work 
almost exclusively for our monument until sufficient amount could 
be realized to enable us to place the order for the building of the 
monument. Having now accomplished this, the "Granville Grays" 
Chapter stands ready with willing hearts and generous hands to do 
their part in whatever undertakings the State Convention may 
deem wise and deserving. 

Besides our monument work we have contributed in veteran 
work as it came before us. In preparing a programme for Lee and 
Jaekson day we made a special effort to emphasize our Southern 
Songs, deeming it ail important to preserve them, believing that 
"When monuments are dust, 

And marble shall decay; 
Our Southern Songs, as sentinels 
Shall guard the Soldiers' clay." 
On the lOOih anniversary birthday of the noble Jefferson Davis 
a meeting of the chapter was called and a sketch of his life was 
read by Mrs. Chas. G. Elliott, of Norfolk, Va. The Granville Grays 
Chapter, though numbering a score of members, has only ten active 
working members but these were encouraged in September by ap- 
plication for membership by seven prominent women v/ho were 
cordially welcomed. We have applications from fifty veterans for 
Crosses of Honor, which we hope to present at the time appointed 
for presentation of Crosses of Honor.

forth all efforts to raise money to erect a Confederate monument for 
Union County. We gave the old soldiers a dinner the Fourth of 
July, sent baskets to the County Home, besides taking in a nice 
little sum on the monument fund. We now have $351.43 on it. We 
have not been able to contribute to other causes, but we hope to be 
able to do more in the future. Heretofore very little interest has 
been taken in the work, but we hope to make it more interesting, 
and do better work. Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. DIXON SYKES, 

President.

Jackson Manual Training and Industrial School, as well as to the

marked the grave of Col. Wm. L. Sanders. We have visited aged 
and suffering veterans, and with inexpressible pleasure in the priv- 
ilege of such ministry We have, as usual arranged for the annual 
reunion of veterans. The reunion and dinner seem more and more 
enjoyed, and are aiteuded by increasing numbers. School children 
have been enlisted as our assistants, with more enthusiasm than 
ever before. Teachers cordially aid us. The community is most 
responsive to the Chapter and its work. Our dead, we not only 
honor on Memorial Day and man by man as they pass, but we seek 
to save their matchless history from oblivion. The Battle of Bent- 
onville Chapter again makes annual report that it requires of each

member a sketch recording the Confederate service and remini- 
ssences of the men whose service she claims in joining. We again

torian, are to be thus kept until the great book is filled, and then 
sent to the Secretary of State.

FINANCIAL REPORT: 

Receipts $196.50. Disbursements $127.15. 

Remarks — The Gastonia Chapter is proud to report another 
year's good work. Dues, State and general, were paid promptly at 
our January meeting. This we know helps the treasurer, and we 
feel better afterwards. Seven certificates of membership have been 
given, and new there is not a member of our Chapter without one. 
Several of our members have moved to other towns, but we have 
added five new names to our roll call, and therefore, have kept the 
membership about the same. Only two have asked for demits, one 
was sent to Charlotte, and the other to Fayetteville. The majority 
of veterans in our vicinity are in usually good financial circum- 
stances, and there is but little from that standpoint we can do- 
However, opportunities have been presented to us this year, and it 
is with great pleasure and pride we always respond to these calls. 
Six dollars was given to a needy old veteran and his wife for a 
worthy purpose. Flowers and tempting delicacies are taken to the 
sick, and whenever a veteran dies, our Memorial Committee sends 
a laurel wreath tied with a red and white ribbon, and when possible, 
we attend the funeral in a body. Then we have a committee write 
resolutions which we publish in our town papers, and a copy of 
same sent to the bereaved ones. Crosses of Honor were bestowed 
on all the celebration days and on thz Gaston County veterans' an- 
nual reunion day, and if there is a veteran in the county now who 
has not a Cross of Honor, we do not know it. January 19th and 
June 3rd were most fittingly celebrated, and on the latter a splendid 
historical address was given by Maj. W. A. Graham. Kay 10th is 
always our "'red letter" day, and this year surpassed former occas- 
ions. Besides the usual exercises, Richardson's orchestra, of Char- 
lotte, rendered a most soul-stirring musical program, after which 
every eye and ear of a packed auditorium was turned to our State's 
great orator, that true and noble man, Hon. Locke Craig, who deliv- 
ered the grandest and most eloquent address ever heard in our 
town. At the conclusion of theas exercises badges of red and white 



15 w 2 Minutes op Twelfth Annual Convention 



ribbon, on which were the letters U. C. V. and the words Gastonia, 
N. C, were pinned to the coat of every veteran, given as a little 
souvenir from our Chapter, as they formed in the line of march to 
the cemetery, where together with the Daughters and Children of 
the Confederacy, they paid honor to their dead comrades. After 
this, a beautiful dinner, followed with cigars was given to this 
{fraud body of two hundred old veterans. The Historical Committee 
has sent sketches of the lives of ten of our veterans this year, and 
we are constantly endeavoring to add to this number. In accord- 
ance with the suggestions of the general convention to the schools 
for the year 190S, our chapter has taken up the study of the religi- 
ons and public life of Jeff. Davis, as soldier, statesman, scholar and 
Christian gentleman, and it is our purpose to place pictures of Jeff- 
erson Davis, together with those of Generals Lee and Jackson in all 
our public schools. The gold medals, offered annually by our 
Chapter to the members of the tenth grade of the Gastonia Graded 
School, for the best paper on the "'War and Its Causes," was won by 
a young lady who wrote a most excellent paper. The social part cf 
of our year's work has proved both pleasant and profitable. In Jan- 
uary we realized $17. from au oyster supper. In the spring much 
merriment was derived from the "Union Depot," and a profit of $40. 
Later on the ladies sold ice cream and cake with fair profits, and 
recently the "Amusic," a moving picture show, very kindly gave us 
a "benefit," resulting in $33. for our treasury. We have given $10 to 
the Educational Fund for two ladies at the State Normal; $1. to the 
Jackson Training School; $10. to the Arlington monument; $2. to 
the Davis Monument, and $1. each towards the Wirz and Shiloh 
monuments. To the Soldiers' home we sent $20. for the purchase 
of an art square and two rocking chairs, hoping to add to the com- 
forts of the Gastonia room. Let us all remember the home first, 
their needs and comforts, for the old soldiers can't be with us long. 
Respectfully submitted,

our exercises celebrating Jefferson Davis' birthday, we sold ice 
cream and cakes, thereby realizing a small sum for the use of the 
Chapter. We have framed a picture of Jefferson Davis which we 
shall present to our graded school. We have a few enthusiastic

CHILDREN'S CHAPTERS. 



No. 1— WASHINGTON GRAYS CHAPTER, WASHINGTON. 

The Washington Grays Chapter has not been able to accomplish 
much in the past year, because they have had no regular place to 
hold their meetings. 

They assisted in the celebration of General Lee's birthday, and 
on Memorial Day marched and took part in the services at the 
Opera House. 

They made all the markers for the soldiers' graves; made ever- 
green wreaths for the monument, and assisted in decorating the 
graves. 

They contributed $2.00 for General Ransom's Portrait. 

We hope to send in a better report next time. 
Respectfully submitted, 
OLIVE KEAIS GALLAGHER,

No. 4— JOHN PHIFER YOUNG CHAPTER, CONCORD. 

Our Chapter is in good condition, and the membership remains 
about the same, forty-five. We receive new members,- but the older 
ones go off to school and outgrow the organization. So we lose as 
many as we gain. 

The Children took part as usual in the observance of Lee-Jack- 
son Day and Memorial Day, and assisted in serving the dinner giv- 



102 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

en by the Dodson Ramseur Chapter to oitr County/ veterans on Jeff. 
Davis' birthday. On the latter jay. celebrating the 100th anniver- 
sary of the birth of Davis, the Children presented a iarge steel en- 
graving of President Davis, handsomely framed, to the Central 
building of the Concord Public School. They also contributed $1. 
to the Wyatt monument fund. 

The principal work of the Chapter the past year has been a 
portrait in oil of Capt. John Phifer Young, in whose honor this 
Chapter was named, to be placed in the N. C. room at the Confed- 
erate museum at Richmond, Va. 

Our efficient secretary and treasurer has entered the University 
at Chapel Hill. We miss him very much. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. JOHN P. ALLISON, 

Leader. 



No. 5 -JANE HUGHES CHAPTER, NEW BERNE. 

It is with great pleasure that we send the report of our Chapter 
with a membership of eighty-six. Fourteen new members have 
been enrolled during the year. The meetings are held regularly on 
the tenth of each month, and the Children seem much interested in 
the cause, as was attested by the large number in attendance at our 
Memorial Day exercises, and by the beautiful flowers they carried 
and so lovingly placed on our Confederate monument. 

On the first of May, they revived the old May-Day custom of 
chosing and crowning the May Queen, followed by the May pole 
dance, from which they realized twenty-five dollars. 

On the third of June, at the old soldiers' dinner, given by the 
Daughters, they entertaiued the veterans with the May pole dance, 
also contributing towards the dinner. 

During the year they have sent one dollar to Mrs. Brooks to 
placa name over the Jane Hughes bed which they endowed last 
year; $5.00 to the Wyatt monument fund; $10.00 to the Stonewall 
Jackson Training School, and have in the treasury $19.50. 

The Children arc looking forward with much pleasure in mak- 
ing and sending a Christmas box to the old soldiers at Raleigh.

No Report. 



No. 8— ROBT. E. LEE CHAPTER, ASHEVILLE. 

The organization of the children in Asheville into a Children's 
Chapter has been accomplished with much enthusiasm on the part 
of the young people. We have in all nearly forty members enroll- 
ed, and others coming in, with attendance so far of twenty-two or 
twenty-three. 

We shall take up for winter stud/, the Battles of the Confeder- 
acy, in detail, beginning with the Firing on Fort Sumter. These are 
to be carried out in colored chalk on a sort of chart. We shall take 
the generals also, and the lives of the Confederate President, Vice- 
President, and Cabinet members, only short sketches, of course. 
Also songs of the Confederacy and an occasional ten-minute story 
or talk by a Veteran that the children may hear the man who can 
say, - 'I was there." The program for each meeting is not to be over 
three-quarters of an hour or an hour, and the writer realized that 
the only way to "keep the interest alive" in the children is to "be 
a child" with them, full of sparkling enthusiasm and a strong "vib- 
rant" love of the South. 

We hope to keep our children interested and enthused, and to 
teach them patriotism without favoritism, reverence for the men 
and women who trod the pages of a nation's history, without bitter- 
ness. We meet every three weeks. 

Respectfully submitted, 
MRS. J. FRAZIER GLENN, 

Leader. 



No. 9— GEORGE DAVIS CHAPTER, WILMINGTON. 

The George Davis Chapter is in fine condition, and there is 
much interest among members. 

Our monthly meetings are well attended, and our officers, who 
are the older girls, preside, and they fulfill their positions admir- 
ably. 



164 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

We have fifty members enrolled, fourteen new names added 
during the past year. The Chapter does not grow perceptably in 
numbers, for the reason that our older members leave us for board- 
ing schools, and as our age limit is eighteen years, they are transfer- 
red to our Mother Chapter when they return, their places being fill- 
ed by the younger set. 

We have a beautiful entertainment each year, and at our la9t 
cleared $45.00. 

In the past years, since our organization, we have given $10.00 
to the George Davis monument fund, but this year we gave $30.00. 
We have responded to calls for contributions to other monuments 
to our Confederate dead, and for the celebration of the birthdays of 
President Davis and General Lee, in which we always take part 
working, and enjoyed all. 

On Memorial day each member wears their badge of red and 
white, and carries a bunch of flowers which are laid on the mound 
of our Confederate monument, under which lie so many of our 
dead heroes. 

A great interest in the Chapter is a Scrap Book given us by the 
Mother of the Cape Fear Chapter, Mrs. Wm. M. Parsley and already 
be<*un by her. The children collect items of history and pictures 
for this, and some day we expect to have a valuable book of facts 
lor our museum. We are to have a Birthday Fund in January, each 
cbild bringing the number of pennies they arc years old. This fund 
will be used in celebrating the birthdays of President Davis, Gen- 
eral Lee, and our beloved and honored George Davis. These days 
mean so much to us, and we keep them with great interest and 
pleasure. Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. T. E. SPRUNT, 

Leader.

No. 11-STARS AND BARS CHAPTER, NEWTON. 

Our Chapter has done its part in aiding our Mother Chapter in 
honoring the dead heroes who sleep in Eastview Ceuietery, and 
above all in ministering to the wants of those veterans left us. In 
the reunion exercises and dinner they take special delight. What- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 165 



ever the Daughters bid them do, they arc ever ready and willing. 
Respectfully submitted, 

CARRIE THORNTON, 

Leader. 



No. 12— STONEWALL JACKSON CHAPTER, CONOVER. 

For many reasons the Children have been unable to have very 
regular meetings this year, but they work with a will whenever 
their Mother Chapter in Newton calls on them. 

Respectfully submitted. 

MRS. F. S. SMYRE, 

Leader. 



No. 13— J. D. MOORE CHAPTER, GASTONIA. 

The J. D. Moore Chapter is always glad to have an opportunity 
to report its splendid work. 

And not since its organization have we enjoyed a fuller at- 
tendance, seen greater interest manifested, or realized better re- 
sults from our great efforts than this year. 

The different colleges have claimed many of our older girls, 
but the younger ones are rapidly stepping in line, and making fine 
workers. 

They always contribute largely to the success of all the cele- 
bration days, and every other interest of the Daughters. 

Sketches of the lives of several more of the veterans have been 
added to the Historical Record, and it is our purpose to have every 
child in the Chapter add monthly to this if possible, for the dear 
old veterans are passing from us all too quickly without even a line 
to tell of their heroic deeds. 

And we still require, as have always, every child, who joins, 'to 
bring a sketch of the life of the veteran uuder whom she joins. 

This proves one of the most interesting and sticcessful means of 
securing these papers. 

Their meetings are held monthly in the homes of the different 
members, and the study each month is given to the life of some 
general or hero of the Confederacy. 

And as often as is deemed wise, they are allowed the privilege 
and pleasure of some kind of attractive entertainment from which 
they realize a goodly sum. 



166 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

Last February, from a Martha Washington party, to which 
every one was required to come in costume, they made $54.50 and 
now have a total of $182.31, of which they are very proud, as every 
cent they make goes toward the "Monument Fund." 

Their hands are never idle, and where it is possible to lend as- 
sistance, or answer any call, they are always found ready. 
Respec civilly submitted, 
MRS. THOMAS LEE CRAIG.

MRS. J. G. BRODNAX,

No. 18-JOSHUA VICK CHAPTER, SELMA, N. C. 

This auxiliary of the Henry Wyatt Chapter, of Selma, has been 
faithful, thus enabling the Chapter to add eight new members, mak- 
ing a total of twenty-eight. 

The Chapter has duly observed the three memorial days. Lee- 
Jackson Day was of special interest. On that day prizes were given 
by Miss Etheridge, secretary of the Henry Wyatt Chapter to the 
girls and boys writing the best papers on Lee and Jackson. 

During the year the Children have made a thorough study of 
the lives of our beloved Jefferson and Sam Davis. 

Our receipts are $45.00, and our disbursements, $45.00. 
Of the above amount, $2.50 was given to the George Davis 
monument fund, and $32.00 was donated to the Wyatt monument 
fund. 

From their enthusiasm this year, we hope to do more to per- 
petuate the memory of our beloved Confederacy and Southland. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. J. W. VICK,

no. 19— thomas garrett chapter, windsor. 

During the year we have had the Children join in all celebra- 
tions of the Mother Chapter, January 19th, Memorial Day, June 3rd, 
Old Soldiers' Day and others. We have one or two to recite or 
read something appropriate, and we always open and close with a 
Confederate song. Mrs. Robert Colton has asked a contribution 
from our Children for the Stonewall Jackson Training School, and 
we are going to try and have some little entertainment to get some

No. 21— MINNIE DAVIS CHAPTER, KINSTON. 

In commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of the 
birth of Jefferoon Davis, the members of the A. M. Waddell Chapter, 
with their children, were invited to meet at the home of Mrs. C. F. 
Harvey on the afternoon of June 3rd, 1908, to listen to an address 
by Dr. H. M. Battle, son of Gen. Cullen Battle, U. S. A., on the Life 
and Services of President Davis, after which a Children's Chapter 
was formed. 

In loving remembrance of her father's services to and suffering 
for his people, and as a tribute of affection to the child of the 
Confederacy, it was unanimously decided to call this the Minnie 
Davis Chapter of Children of the Confederacy, and to hold the 
third day of each month. 

The attendance has been large and enthusiastic and the meet- 
ings made interesting by Southern songs, historical tales and short 
histories of the military record of the relative under whom each 
child joined. The catechism prepared by Mrs. Allison and used by 
her ha.> been taught them in order to more fully acquaint them 
with the war and the causes that led to it. No dues or membership 
fee are collected, but each child, on its birthday, is requested to 
contribute as many pennies as it is years old. Ten dollars was 
realized from Garden Tableaux in July, half of this amount being 
contributed to the Henry L. Wyatt Memorial Fund and the remain- 
der to the George Davis Memorial Fund. 

The present enrollment is 55, but a number of children are now 



United Daughters of the Confederacy 169 



preparing their certificates, and when these are in the membership 
will be greatly increased. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. C. F. HARVEY, 

Leader. 

No. 22 — ANNIE LEE CHAPTER, LITTLETON. 

To you in Convention assembled, the Annie Lee Chapter sends 
greetings: 

We organized the chapter in march with nine members. The 
children took part in the Memorial exercises on May 10. Observed 
Jefferson Davis's birthday with appropriate exercises, and a lunch 
to several Veterans and the Roanoke Minute Men Chapter U. D. C. 
We have a bed quilt almost completed for the Soldiers Home in 
Raleigh. Have the promise of several historical papers written by 
Confederate Veterans. 

We now have sixteen members. $20.00 in the treasury, but 
do not have any monthly dues. We have officers among the 
children as it increases the interest, and conduct each meeting in a 
perfect business-like way and try to fit each child for a fine 
"Daughter" in the years to come. 

The officers for the ensuing year are: 

Mary Nicholson, President; 

Eliza Lore Green, Vice-President; 

Burwell Patterson, 2nd Vice-President; 

Virginia Tate, 3rd Vice-President; 

Elizabeth Edwards, Secretary; 

Bessie Lee Cawthorne, Treasurer. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. BESSIE L. W. CAWTHORNE, 
Leader. 



No. 23— DAVIS CENTENIAL CHAPTER, STATESVILLE 

The Davis Centenial Chapter, Children of the Confederacy was 
organized at the residence of Mrs. M. R. Adams, June 3, 1908, 
Jefferson Davis' 100 birthday, hence the name. 

Fifteen joined that day, though not so many were at the meet- 
ing. The President, Rents Gill, and Secretary, Harry Percy Grier 



170 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 

were elected, the others being postponed to the next meeting, some- 
time in September, at the call of the Leader. 

At this second meeting Minor Adams was elected Vice-Presi- 
dent, and Edith Moore, Treasurer. The work to be undertaken by 
the children will be decided upon later. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. W. R. McLELLAND, 

Leader. 



No. 24— WALLACE REINHARDT CHAPTER, LINCOLNTON. 

Our Chapter has a membership of forty, some of which are not 
active members. We have never undertaken any special line of 
work since our organization, but we now have fifty-two dollars, 
cash, on hands. Since the Daughters have secured a Memorial 
Hall, we have as our object the furnishing of a room in that build- 
ing, in memory of Mr. Wallace Reinhardt, for whom our chapter is 
named. We have done very little work since we organized in 1903. 

October 10, 1908. Treasurer's Report. 

No. 25— COLUMBUS GRAYS CHAPTER, WHITEVILLE. 

We have just organized a children's chapter in Whiteville, as 
auxilliary to the Jefferson Davis U. D. C. It was founded with 
fifty children, of whom we are sure are eligible to membership, and 
s«me others that we do not know positively about yet. They chose 
the name of "Winnie Davis", the fair daughter of the noble 
chieftain, whose name their mother chapter bears, but as there is 
another children's chapter by that name they had to take another. 

MRS. ISAAC IACKSON, 

Leader.

N MEMORIAM. 



PAMLICO CHAPTER. 

WASHINGTON. 

The hand of the "Grim Reaper" has fallen heavily on our band 
since our last assembling, claiming three members, each a loyal 
Daughter. 

First, Mrs. W. C. Hassell, our efficient Recording Secretary, 
passed to that "Better land," followed by our loved and lamented 
Mrs. George H. Brown, Si\, and then Miss Susie Baker Saunders, 
daughter of our honored president, and an enthusiastic daughter, 
responsive to all that was noblest in our cause and loyal to our 
Chapter's every interest. 

"Not now, but in the coming years 
Sometime will understand." 

MRS. EDWIN M. BROWN. 

MRS. THOMAS RUFFIN.

The General Burgwyn Anderson Chapter mourns the sudden 
death, on May 11th, of its beloved member and former Vice-Presi- 
dent, Mrs. Thomas Ruffin, at her home in Hillsboro, N. C.

172 Minutes of Twelfth Annual Convention 
j. e. b. stuart chapter. 

FAYETTEVILLE. 

This Chapter has lost during the past year three members. 

Mrs. Annie K. Kyle, widow of the late Jesse K. Kyle, died 
June 29th, 1908. She was one of the most patrotic women of the 
South. Few women did more during the war than this noble wo- 
man. While her husband was at the front, she was at home caring 
for her own, nursing the wounded and sick soldiers in the hospital, 
feeding the hungry, and doing all in her power for the soldiers in 
the field. And when the "war was over," she with other true wo- 
men began at once to care for the dead. Her life was indeed a re- 
markable one. She was confined to her bed nearly forty years, but 
she never lost interest in the came she loved so well. She organ- 
ized the J. E. B. Stuart Chapter, and was its first president. 

Anna McRae Lutterloh was born in Wilmington, and died in 
Fayetteville October 1st, 1908. She had filled the office of 1st Vice- 
President of the J. E. B. Stuart Chapter for a number of times, and 
did much for the cause. 

Entered into rest, November 17th, 1907, 7*liss Maggie Anderson 
Maliett, one lov ed much by all who knew ber. 



ROCKINGHAM CHAPTER. 

REIDSVILLE. 

For the first time since our Chapter was formed, death has in- 
vaded cur ranks, and carried from our earthly companionship, the 
sweet spirit of Mrs. Dora C. McKinney Walker. We miss her rad- 
iant smiles and genial companionship. The poor and needy lost 
a true and faithful friend, and is the home her own loved ones 
mourn for the true wife and fondest mother. 

We love and honor her memory, and her sweet and gentle 
influence will ever be eherished. 

MRS. P. F. HALL, 
MRS. P. R. HARRIS. 

CONFEDERATE GRAYS. 

MT. OLIVE. 

Whereas the Angel of Death on July 9th, 1908, entered 
into our midst, and bore away the spirit of a beloved Daughter of 



United Daughters op the Confederacy 173 

the Confederacy, Mrs. Louise Oliver, 

Be it Resolved by the Confederate Grays Chapter of the United 
Daughters of the Confederacy: 

1st. That in the Death of Mrs Oliver, the Chapter has lost a 
true and faithful charter member— one whose knowledge of the try- 
ing days of the Reconstruction rendered her most zealous in honor- 
ing our dead heroes and most solicitous for the comfort of the liv- 
ing. 

2nd. That her true Christian life and her love for the Coaquer- 
ed Banner will be an inspiration to the younger Daughters of the 
Chapter. 

3rd. That a page on the record book of this Chapter be set 
apart sacred to her memory, and that thereon be spread these re- 
solutions, and that a copy of the same be sent the bereaved family, 
and to the local newspaper for publication.

North Carolina Division: 



FIRST DAY -morning session. 

The Thirteenth Annual Convention of the North 
Carolina Division United Daughters of the Confederacy 
met on Wednesday, October 13th , in Wilmington, that 
fair city on the noted Cape Pear river. A city noted 
for its historic interest since the first settlers felled 
the noble monarches of the forests to build their log 
cabins, a city noted for its noble, patriotic men and 
women. Since this country's earliest settlements, and 
above all a city dear to the North Carolina Daughters 
as the birthplace of their organization, and doubly dear 
as the home of our beloved organizer and mother, Mrs. 
W. M. Parsley. 

The preliminary exercises were held Tuesday 
evening. Most of the entire delegation being present. 
Mayor Walter McRae most eloquently opened to the 
Daughters the gates of this charming city.

MR. McRAE'S ADDRESS. 



Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy. 

A long time ago I heard a famous New England orator say: 
"The South is in the dust; our heels are upon its neck, and it shall 
never more arise in America." This prophecy, saturated with hate, 
has failed. One may see now the smoke of thousands of factories 
and furnaces where grim-visaged war left a waste. Millions of 
spindles all over the world are humming with the Southern staple. 
The South is risen. She is erect and moving forward. Among the 
greatest factors in her marvelous resurrection are the faith and 
works of her daughters. They took up the burden when the armies 
were disbanded, and nobly and grandly have they borne it on. And 
when such as you are not welcome here the waters of the Cape 
Fear will be as the waters of Nimrim. You are welcome to Wil- 
mington and I trust that all the people will make you feel so." 



Mrs . W. M. Parsley in the name ofthe Cape Pear 
Chapter bade all welcome to the hearts and homos of 
the hospitable Wilmingbonians. 

MRS. PARSLEY'S WELCOME. 
Daughters of the Confederacy. 

In the name of Cape Fear Chapter I bid you welcome, welcome 
to our hearts and our homes. 

We are glad to have you with us; and we trust that the harmony 
and good feeling of this meeting may extend over and advance our 
work, and help us to attain the high aims and aspirations which we 
cherish as Daughters of the Confederacy and as Daughters of North 
Carolina. 



To these cordial greetings the State President, 
Mrs. Paison, replied in a most happy manner. 

RESPONSE TO ADDRESS OF WELCOME BY MRb. FAIsON. 



Madam President, Daughters of the Confederacy a^jd vTis tors. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy, 7 

It is a great pleasure and honor to me, I assure you, to thank 
you, Madam President of the Cape Fear Chapter aid Col's. McRae 
and Waddell, representing your beautiful city by the sea, for the 
kindly welcome and gracious hospitality extended to the members 
of this the Thirteenth Annual Convention of the United Daughters 
of the Confederacy, of North Carolina. 

In accordance with the old superstition that disaster and mis- 
fortune come to everything associated with the number 13, I am 
sure, will be proved a great fallacy at this meeting; and instead of 
misfortune, bring unalloyed pleasure and success, and the consum- 
mation of all that we may desire. 

Your fame for unbounded hospitality in the city of Wilmington 
has been known for years and we have come prepared to enjoy 
every minute of our stay with you, and you may be entertaining 
angels unawares. We who are irom the mountains and foothills of 
the West, love to smell the salt air and feel the balmy breezes of 
the ocean and enjoy social contact with the "sand fiddlers" of the 
East, who are ever moving about seeding what they may do next, 
We hope to have the beneficial effect in eating your sea food and 
that it will invigorate our brains and enable us to expedite business, 
so that we may enjoy all the good things which you have provided 
tor us. 

It has been said that the men and women who were the pioneers 
of North Carolina were hardy enough not to shrink from a cabin in 
the wilderness, and intelligent enough to treasure books in their 
cabins and will them to their children. 

The Cape Fear section of North Carolina is replete with historic 
interest and your city and county have furnished many brilliant 
and famous men and prominent women to illumine the pages of 
North Carolina's history, politics and social life. Wilmington has 
not always been the progressive city that it now is and if the 
government will give you the 30 foot channel for which you are 
asking, and it means much for the whole State also, it will make 
you a greater city and provide a port tor a State that has proved a 
great factor in the commerce of our country. I see by the tax re- 
turns the city shows good increase in values over last year. North 
Carolina has a history of which we may justly be proud; and no 
other State in the union has as great an aggregation of facts to prove 
it; but I will not take the time to enumerate the "firsts" of North 
Carolina, though I have them tabulated and we have a right to be 



8 Minutes of Thirteenth Annual Convention 

proud of the Old North State. Your own Mrs. Wm. Parsley, of 
whom we are proud, organized the North Carolina Division U. D. 
C. on April 28th, 1897. Her interest in the work has been unabated 
and her influence for good has been widespread and her many good 
qualities of head and heart have made her beloved by all. 

There is one thing that I must say though, and that is, that 
North Carolina can claim and prove that South Carolina was first 
settled by people going from the Cape Fear section of North Caro- 
lina under Sir John Yeamans, who was then Governor of Clarendon, 
(the Cape Fear section of North Carolina). And we must not for- 
get the "tea parties that took place in Wilmington and Edenton al- 
most a year before the noted one at Boston, when your people were 
tired' of British oppression and declared they would stand it no 
longer. 

The Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge took place just 18 miles 
from Wilmington. Your own townsman, Col. James Moore, com- 
manding a regiment. He was on his way to Cross Creek, now 
Fayetteville, to attack the Tories, but they, hearing he was in their 
front on the Brunswick road, crossed the Cape Fear River going 
down the Wilmington road. Col. Moore then ordered Cols. 
Alexander Lillington and Richard Caswell to give battle to the 
Tories at Moore's Creek Bridge. He reached the field of victory a 
few hours after the attack with his regiment. Although he was too 
late to take part in the battle he deserved and received the thanks 
of his country, for planning the first victory won by the Americans 
during the Revolutionary War. 

The Cape Fear section can boast of many prominent heroes. 
Lieutenant Commander James Iredell Waddell of Wilmington, one 
of North Carolina's noted sons, had the unique distinction of being 
the only man who bore the Confederate flag around the world, 
being in command of the vessel "Shenandoah" of the Confederate 
Navy, and he kept the flag floating for three months after the sur- 
render at Appomattox in 1865. 

Commander John N. Moffitt also made a name for himself as 
Captain ol the cruiser "Florida" and in blockade running. 

I must allude to historic Fort Fisher, the little fort just below 
Wilmington, that held out against the enemy of such large numbers 
until every shot was expended and they had killed almost as many 
men as there were soldiers in the fort. 

Col. Lamb of Virginia, the commander of the fort, said: "I 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 9 

believe the time will come with the Old North State when her 
people will regard her defense of Fort Fisher as the grandest event 
in her historic past." 

The only Admiral of the Confederate Navy, Raphael Semmes, 
became famous by his blockade running and in harrassing and 
destroying the vessels of the North on the high seas. The names 
of his two noted vessels were the "Sumter" and the "Alabama." 

The work of the United Daughters of the Confederacy is not based 
on sentiment alone, as the records of our work will show. Our 
main objects are memorial, historical, benevolent, educational and 
social. We are building monuments of bronze and marble to our 
noble Confederate dead as-an inspiration to future generations. We 
have built and assisted in building all over the South, monuments 
in the form of Soldiers Homes, Hospitals, Memorial Halls and 
Schools for descendants of our Confederate Soldiers, in whose 
veins flow pure Anglo-Saxon blood, who otherwise could not be 
educated. 

The cotton plant is the emblem of our U. D. C, for cotton, 
which has always been king in the South, furnished our only means 
whereby oar armies were miintainei.in the field and the women 
and children at home. 

We must see that correct history is taught our children and 
train them, not in hatred towards those of the North who differed 
from us, but in the knowledge of true history of the South in the 
war between the States and the causes that led up to the war, so 
that they will be able to state facts and prove that they are right in 
the principles for which their fathers fought and died; and con- 
tinue to preserve and defend their cause, until the whole civilized 
world will come to know that our cause was just and right. 

Gen. Clement Evans the beloved old Chieftain of the Con- 
federate Veterans says: "There are two facts of his life for which 
no true Confederate soldier will ever apologize. One is that he 
fought, the battle of the South to the finish, and the other is his 
pride, his love, his idolatary as to the women of the South." If it 
had not been for the women of the South the war would have 
ended long before it did, as they showed their heroism and urged 
the men to fight for their country and their rights until they were 
overcome by force. 

Our people fought because the land they loved was invaded 
and principles they cherished were wrenched from them. They 



10 Minutes of Thirteenth Annual Convention 

were fighting for constitutional rights, what our National Military 
School at West Point had taught Pres. Jefferson Davis, Lee and 
Jackson, from "Rawle's on the Constitution," and for homeland and 
honor, until they could fight no longer. 

The typical Confederate soldier was the man in the ranks, a 
private and as soldiers they were unique and incomparable in many 
respects to soldiers of any other country. The world will never see 
the like again, for the flower of the South was in the ranks and 
they were the product of the "Old South Civilization." We must 
give them praise as well as the officers, for they bore the brunt of 
the battle and never complained notwithstanding the fact often 
their bare feet left blood stains on the frozen ground and rags 
covered their bodies. 

There is an expression often used by our people as the "Lost 
Cause." Let us forget such for it is not the truth. Gen. Clement 
Evans, Commander of the United Confederate Veterans, said atMem- 
phis inMay at the Reunion: "We have theDivme Word for a saying 
that you may sow a field with wheat and bury the grain beaeath 
the ground so that the external shell will die, but the wheat is not 
lost." No! No, our cause was .not lost because it was not wrong. 
Our cause is a living constitutional principle inherent in the 
nature of our wonderful system of free government, which shall be 
employed as a power for peace aad for our common glory. We will 
hail with the whole South, a genuine non-sectionalism of the 
government. Let every one rememoer this and never use the 
objectionable term "Lost Cause." 

We often hear the term "New South" Now, I contend and will 
not listen to any argument for it, there is no New South, only the 
old South taking on new life and coming into its own again. 
Though there is a "New North" disposed to justice, and many are 
now willing to learn the truth about the South. Lately many things 
have taken place to prove this assertion. The name of the only 
President of the Confederacy "Jefferson Davis" has been replaced 
on John Cabin Bridge near Washington, D. C. (Thanks to members 
of the Southern Memorial Association and the U. D. C.) The busts 
of Robert £. Lee and Commodore Maury are on the dishes of the 
silver service of the United States Battleship, Va., and the bust of 
President Jefferson Davis is on the large pieces of the silver ser- 
vice recently presented to the United States Battleship, Mississippi^ 

The United States has also given us a part of Arlington, the 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 11 

home of General Robert E. Lee, as a Confederate Cemetery, and we 
are now working to put a monument there worthy of our cause; so 
as to show to the world there was a Confederacy and for what if 
stood. The statue of President Jeflerson Davis presented by Mis- 
sissippi is to be placed in the Hall of Fame. 

The South is now fast recovering from the ruin wrought by the 
war, and as the South once ruled and controlled the United States 
for 50 years before the war it will not be long, if things continue as 
they now are, until she will control "once more. I am firmly con- 
vinced of this as everything points in that direction. It seems the 
South is the centre of a great storehouse of wealth. Hear what the 
Manufacturers Record has to say about it: "Think of its coal area, 
three times as great nearly as the combined coal fields of Great 
Britain, Germany and Pennsylvania, of its iron ore, far surpassing 
in quantity that which made the fortunes of Carnegie and Krupp; 
of its oil, promising to exceed in yield all that went to make the 
Rockefeller fortunes, of its sulphur, phosphates, cement-making 
material, copper, and other higher forms of minerals in like mam- 
moth proportions." There is so much to be said and told about the 
South and our State of North Carolina I could detain you a long 
time, but as our time is limited, I must refrain. Now, to you dear 
friends of Wilmington, who have bid us welcome to your homes 
and hearts, I again, in the name of the U. D. C, thank you most 
heartily. And may I say, we hope that our coming and stay among 
you may be half as enjoyable to you, as it most assuredly will be to 

us. 

MRS. I. W. FAISON, 

Pres. N. C. Div. U. D. C. 



The portrait of Capt. Rando'ph A. Shotwell, which 
had been p tinted during the year, was then unveiled 
with appropriate exercises. The presentation address 
Wi.s made by Captain Walter Taylor, and the veil from 
the face of this leader among the Ku Klux, was drawn 
by one- of that Klan, Capt. Thos. Slocum of Goldsboro.

Gentlemen. 



12 Minutes of Thirteenth Annual Convention 

If you wish to read in letters of blood and iron the spirit that 
actuated the life of Randolph A. Shotwell, I will send you on what 
may may seem at first a strange journey. For I will commend to 
your perusal no less a book of hatrod to the South and Southern 
men than Albion W. Tourgee's "Fool's Errand." You will find the 
author, as you know, a man transplanted from one civilization to 
another and attempting to write of people and conditions of which 
he knew practically nothing. You will find misrepresentations of 
Southern life and Southern character by the score. You will find 
things to make your blood boil in indignant protest even yet, after 
all these years, and after the author of this drama of Reconstruction 
has, with so many of those with whom he differed so radically, 
passed over the river to the bivoua of the dead. But you will 
find also, between the lines, the author's understanding, if despair- 
ing recognition of a situation unparalleled in the history of the 
world. You will find him 1 yielding a forced admiration to an un- 
conquered and an unconquerable people. You will find him pity- 
ing the North in its folly and standing mute before the invincible 
heroism of the unbeaten South. You will find him most fanatical 
of all carpet-baggers — packing his grip in hopelessness and ceasing, 
as a cheerless effort, the misbegotten attempt to legislate the white 
man out of his heritage, even though his land were drenched in 
blood and his home laid waste with fire. Say this for Albion W. 
Tourgee: That he had the intellect to perceive his defeat and the 
courage— albeit ungracefully— to admit the fact. "A Fool's Errand" 
was at once the bitterest and the truest title ever given to a record 
of disillusion. 

What Tourgee found was this: A nation prostrate after war; a 
people bowed in grief; and alien and servile race elevated at a word 
to the power to command. He saw a horde of adventurers, flushed 
with victory and the hope of spoil, descend under the protection 
of hostile bayonets to loot an already apparently helpless land. He 
saw the Legislature, the courts, the State Government, the county 
offices, taken away from the control of those who had governed for 
generations and given over to political vultures who, in all human 
probability, had the force and numbers to make their rule perpet- 
ual. And then Tourgee saw that which no people ever saw before, 
which no man has ever so well described as he— the successful re- 
volt of a civilization within, yet against, the government. He saw 
in every community a handful of men and boys, fresh from four 



United Daughters of the Confederacy, 13 

years of fearful battle for constitutional rights, pledge themselves a 
second time to a greater battle for their homes and for their tradi- 
tions. He saw these men, losers in a Titantic struggle for an Em- 
pire, raise over night the Empire Invisible. He was witness of the 
fearful spectacle of law swallowed up in patriotism, struggling, he 
saw manhood triumph over Fate. 

What seemed to impress Tourgee most was what, to him, ap- 
peared the sublime impertinence of the effort. soldiers at the 
polls; soldiers in the courts; soldiers on the streets. Negroes with 
the ballot; lands sold for taxes, war-worn veterans callousing their 
unaccustomed hands at the plow in almost hopeless endeavor to 
scratch a sustenance from an impoverished ground. On the one 
side power, and money, and numbers; on the other grief, poverty, 
the galling regrets of a Lost Cause. For these men to rise in de- 
fiance, for them to assume to ignore the Congress of a triumphant 
enemy and ignore its laws, for them to declare again their inde- 
pendence and to reassert their right to rule, savored of the mania 
of a people. Yet as Tourgee watched, the impossible achieved 
itself. As he marvelled, the birth-strain ol the people made itself 
felt. As he pondered, and while it suffered, the while it endured, 
the while it persisted under persecution. Southern civilization 
stolidly paid the cost to gain its end. 

Wiiat Tourgee recognized, Randolph A. Shotwell was. Born in 
Virginia, his name, his character, his tame, are part and parcel of 
North Carolina. Leaving Media College, Pennsylvania, as a boy, he 
started south at the beginning of the war, and meeting the Virginia 
Volunteers, partieipated in the battle of Leesburg. When he joined 
his lather in Rutherfordton at the age of twenty-two, he was 
already a veteran of seventeen battles and had won his rank as 
Captain as leader of a brigade of sharpshooters in Pickett's Charge 
at Gettysburg. He had been Liken as a spy, only to make an escape 
from the very jaws of certain and ignominious death. He had been 
taken prisoner, but from long months of close confinement amid 
rats and vermin had carried away a proud and unbroken spirit. 
When Saunders, the Durhams, old Joe Turner and others took up 
their Herculean task of redeeming their State, they found in Ran- 
dolph Shotwell a boy whom experience had made over into a man, 
whom suffering and want had tempered to hardest steel, and to 
whose impetuous courage disaster and defeat had acted only as the 
whet-stone of its keener edge. The situation needed spokesmen' 



14 Minutes of Thirteenth Annual Convention 

and Rcndolph Shotwell could speak as well as 'fight. The times 
called for a fearless and unsparing pen; his never traced a line in 
attack that it did not draw blood. The era wanted volunteers to 
stand forth as targets to the enemy and as inspiration to an all but 
hopeless people; Shotwell was used to taking his life in his hands. 
He stood militant against the sky line, heroic challenge to murder 
on the rope. In Newbern he established the "Journal of Commerce" 
— a paper misnamed, for commerce had not yet begun where a 
nation of rulers had become in a day a people in bondage. He 
moved to Rutherfordton and started the "Vindicator"— better 
named, that. There he thundered in his paper against conditions. 
There, in imagination, one reading its files can almost see the flash 
of the sword in the steel-like ring of his words; can almost vision 
forth the set face of the man, slowly and desperately battling still, 
after years of war, freedom; can even now feel the thrill that must 
have been felt by the people who read, almost in fear at their 
audacity in reading his audacious appeal. 

It was at Rutherfordton they took him, snatched him away 
from his desk, slapped him with the white palms of black hands- 
It was there he was tied like a dog and taken away, without the 
semblance of legal procedure, to what was called a trial. I like to 
think of him, his arms pinioned with ropes, walking into the 
Senate Chamber at Raleign with the haughty reliance of a captive 
Gallic king. I like to think of the black mane of his hair pushed 
back from his imperious brow. It thrills me to imagine the glance 
of his eagle's eye, the dignity of his manacled hands. I like to hear 
the venomous hiss of those who hated him the wore, because to 
look upon him was to feel the tug of his power. I like to recon- 
struct the whole dramatic picture, the hall of the people given over 
to the vandals; the crowd, blood-thirsty, yet awed; the nervous 
jury and the cringing Judge, and in this grouping that marked a 
moral and political transition to catch the uplift and the poise of 
the man who stood forth, ready for martyrdom, unafraid. I like to 
think of him again, handcuffed, as he was taken aboard the train on 
October 5th, 1870 — five years after Appomattox, if you please — to 
be d in a term of six years in a Federal prison and under sentence to 
pay the impossible fine of $15,000. But I like better to think of 
him, personification of the bird of freedom that he was, when, in a 
prison cell, they offered him liberty at the price of playing Judas 
to his friends. Can we not feel the slow and scornful sweep of his 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 15 

eye over those who brought him the insult he was powerless to 
resent. And can we not yet see the deliberate turning of his con- 
temptuous back upon those who through the bars of his prison 
though to torment and annoy a lion, captured and untamed. 

But President Grant knew war. He knew the honor of a sold- 
ier. It is reasonable to believe that his pardon was given freely, 
and that in his magnanimous heart there was a feeling of stern 
justice that by his act the man who had gone to Albany a felon re- 
turned a hero. It is pleasant, too, to reflect that when at length 
death ran upon him, it found him at rest, in honor and in peace. 
There had been nothing he had not braved, little he had not suf- 
fered. But, returning home, he edited in Charlotte a paper whose 
name typified the passion of his life— The Southern Home. And 
six years after he was tried and convicted of crime he took his seat, 
as a representative from Mecklenburg, to legislate in the very halls 
from which he had been carried bound with ropes. And when he 
came to die, he had weathered the storm; had seen the ship he had 
helped to save making at last into a fair and shining harbor, and 
still the brave and fearless pilot, looking back without bitterness 
into his troubled wake, and looking forward with faith and hope. 

Daughters of the Confederacy, I am proud of the opportunity 
you have given me of presenting this portrait of a man who was a 
gallant soldier, a steadfast patriot, an honest gentleman, a central 
figure in days which followed 1865. The artist, Mrs. Marshall 
Williams, herself a Daughter, has caught in wonderful measure the 
spirit and significance of the model whom, necessarily, she so 
largely divined. In every stroke of her brush I seem to see the 
intuition of love illuminating the instinct and the learning of art. 
The product of her labor does both her and you the highest credit, 
her for achieving a most difficult task, and you for causing the pre- 
servation for future generations of so sympathetic a likeness of one 
who in times of sorest distress fought bravely, lived straight, and 
died an honor to himself and to his State. 

Daughters of the Confederacy, I present to you the portrait of 
Randolph A. Shotwell. 



10 Minutes of Thirteenth Annual Convention 

The portrait was received by Mrs. Eugene Little, 
Chairman of the North Carolina room in Richmond, 
and by her turned over to the State Regent of tliat 
room, Mrs. Latta Johnston. 

MRS. LITTLE'S ADDRESS. 



Time has its beatifications. A few months ago in the presence 
of the Holy Father, the Maid of Orleans, who was burned at the 
stake May 1431, was beatified, despite Shakespear's ribald jest and 
Voltaire's anathemas. 

Today our State commands us, through the noble company of 
her United Daughters, to stand at attention and salute the memory 
of one of her sons, whom fortune betrayed. Represented at the 
Bar of the Court by the lion hearted Bragg and others of great learn- 
ing they were induced by the presiding judge, as I am informed, to 
assume an attitude of unwillingness to fight their case with beak 
and claw. It proved the undoing of the accused. The judge 
stroked them as the feline creature its prey. Randolph Shotwell 
was sent to prison at Albany. Over its front door the inscription 
Dante cut over the Inferno would be a mere joke. 

Ah the gloat of the judge. We record our admiration of 
Mecklenburg, which honored him with its commission when he 
had been delivered from the curse of that asylum for the vicious. 
Into our keeping you have done well to commit the features of this 
patriot, this noble citizen sprung from the loins of the covenanters. 

Embattled with Virginians and sanctified in the records of our 
dear old mother we receive with open arms this triumph over mis- 
fortune. 



In a few brief words Mrs. Johnston received the 
portrait committed to her care. 

MRS. JOHNSTON'S ACCEPTANCE. 



As Regent of the North Carolina Room in our Confederate 
Museum at Richmond, Va., it is my pride and pleasure to receive 



United Daughters op the Confederacy. 17 

the portrait of this our Soldier and Martyr. Within the walls of 
this room we will honor and cherish it, for it speaks more eloquent- 
ly than words of the cause so dear to all our hearts. 



This portrait is a most excellent likeness and is 
the handiwork of Mrs. Marshall Williams of Faison, 
who deserves to be known as the "Portrait Painter of 
the North Carolina Division," as she has done so much 
work for them, and whose portraits ornament the North 
Carolina Room in Richmond Museum. After the sing- 
ing of Carolina by the entire audience, both guests and 
hostesses mingled in an informal reception, where old 
friends renewed their acquaintances, and new delegates 
were made' welcome and at home. Most delicious 
punch and refreshments were served during the 
evening. 



The business session of the convention opened 
Wednesday morning in the Masonic Temple, where a 
room had been set aside for that purpose. It was 
beautifully decorated with Confederate colors, Con- 
federate flags and evergreens, while the faces of 
President Davis, Generals R. E. Lee and Stonewall 
Jackson looked down upon the women assembled, 
pledged to keep alive the memories of the cause they 
loved. 

The opening prayer was offered by the Chaplain, 
Mrs. James Kenan, The roll call showed present 
among the Honorary Presidents, Mrs. W. M. Parsley 
and Mrs. E. E. Moffitt, Honorary Vice President, 
Mrs. T. J. Jarvis. The State officers were all in their 
places except Miss Sue Collier, 1st Vice President,

The Credential Committee's report was next given 
and called forth much discussion oyer the oft rehashed 
question as to whether delegates on the floor be allowed 
to pay taxes on members, when the chapter treasurer 
had failed to send said taxes to state treasurer, even 
though paid to the chapters. The following resolution 
was made by Mrs. H. A. London, but voted down by a 
rising vote of 22 for and 41 against. 

In view of the fact that the Pamlico Chapter is one of our 
oldest chapters, and that Miss Rodman personally collected and 
paid these taxes which were not received, probably miscarried in 
the mails or some other miskake, I move that she be allowed to 
cast those votes reported unpaid for. 

Mrs. Henry A. London. 

The report was then accepted subject to correc-

PRESIDENT'S REPORT. 



Madam President and Members of the North Carolina Div. United 
Daughters of the Confederacy in Convention Assembled: 

It is a great pleasure to be with you in the home of the Presi- 
dent of the Mother Chapter of the United Daughters of the Con- 
federacy of our State, your beloved president, Mrs. W. M. Parsley, 
who is now acting in that capacity, being the first State President. 

This is the Thirteenth Anniversary, on the I3th day of the 
month, of our Slate Convention of the U. D. C. You know the 
general belief and superstition of many people is that this is an 
unlucky number, but I think we have proved this false, as it has 
been a very successful year with all departments of our work. 

It is with great pride and pleasure that your president presents 
to you the report of your State Division. Most of the chapters have 
done fine work, some have not done as well as they might, and a 
few, I am afraid, have not exerted themselves very much. Every 
chapter must remember that they are an important part of a great 
Association of nearly 60,000 women and each has a work to perform 
and no one can do it for you. You are making history for future 
generations and it must be well made or it will be doubted and 
questioned in after years. That is why we try to impress it upon 
you how important it is for your Historians to get and to keep all 
records, for they are for future use and will be of great value. 

Your president will now give as brief a report of your work as 
possible: 

We now have 89 chapters in the State Division, with over 
4,000 members, 4 having been organized this year by your president, 
and three or four others are still thinking about it and I hope will 



24 Minutes op Thirteenth Annual Convention 

soon organize. The following are the new chapters: Abel A. Shu- 
ford, Hickory; D. H. Hill, Elizabeth City; Hertford County, Winton; 
Halifax County, Halifax; Norfleet Harrell, Murfreesboro, and one at 
Madison. It was a great pleasure to be with the Hickory Chapter 
when they organized and the members all seemed very enthusiastic 
and I am sure they will do good work. 

We are proud of our Children's Auxiliaries and good work is 
being done by our Leaders in the State. There are only 26 in the 
State and it is earnestly desired that every chapter shall have one 
and there is no excuse why your chapter should not have them. 
Your President has recommended that every chapter create the 
office of "Leader of Children's Auxiliary" and the State add to its 
officers "State Organizer of Children's Auxiliaries. As it has been, 
what was done had to be undertaken by your President, or Chapter 
President and with their other duties, the proper attention could 
not be given to them. You all know wherever one is organized the 
children are very enthusiastic and are ready to do anything you 
may give them to do, and are always anxious to meet. Now will 
not every Chapter President or representative promise to organize 
one as soon as you go home? Upon these children will depend the 
carrying on of the U. D. C. work in the future when the older peo- 
ple will have passed away. So they must be taught correct history, 
our Confederate songs and poems and be familiar with the causes 
that led up to the War and be able to prove that our principles 
were right and that truth will conquer in the end. 

The Chairman of the Educational Committee reports better 
work done in the State this year than last. We now have three (3) 
scholarships at the Normal College, Greensboro. And if every 
chapter would send ten ($10.00) dollars the amount asked from all 
chapters, we could have more scholarships. These scholarships 
mean much for the girls that are thus educated, tor they go out into 
the world as useful women and their influence works for the good 
of the U. D. C. 

Your president wrote to all the schools and colleges in the 
state and even to Harvard, where many years before the war our 
southern boys were sent to school and at present we have quite a 
number there, and asked them to give the N. C. Div. U. D. C. a 
scholarship in their schools for young women and young men of 
Confederate ancestry. 

Of all the number written to, we received eight scholarships, 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 25 

one each at University of N. C, Trinity, Wake Forest, Guilford 
College, Oxford Seminary, Davenport College, Lenoir, Statesville 
College and Collegiate Institute, Mt. Pleasant. These just carry 
tuition with them, except Mt. Pleasant and the president gives 
tuition, fees and room rent. Now we received these so late in the 
summer they could not be worked as we desired and the Chairman 
of Education could not handle them, so this will be a great work 
for the coming president to continue; for when the idea is perfected 
it will be a very valuable thing for us. Only one of these scholar- 
ships has been filled. Mr. Joel Ragsdale Hill of Lexington secur- 
ed that one. Quite a number of the presidents said they would 
take up the subject with their Board of Directors and by next year 
or sometime in the future try and work them up so a scholarship 
would embrace everything. Now, the entering wedge has been 
placed, let us prosecute this work vigorously. Your president 
recommends that a standing committee be made to take charge of 
these scholarships and work them up. The correspondence of your 
president grows every year and several hundred letters and cards 
have to be written; much of this could be dispensed with, if officers 
and members would only just read their State Minutes; and reading 
the General Minutes would be quite a help. All letters and cards 
are answered the next day, if possible, and if you do not hear write 
again, as the mail is often lost or misplaced; put your names on the 
outside of your envelope and you will always know if it has been 
delivered. 

The work of our Division has grown so much we need more 
money for it than just the taxes. Your president would suggest 
and hope you will act upon it, that each chapter would give one 
($1.00) dollar a year to make a sinking fund, so extra expenses could 
always be met and not drain the treasury. Sending all money 
through the State Treasurer has worked well and our division gets 
credit for all money collected for any purpose. It has been made a 
law by the General Convention that taxes must be sent in by March 
1st, so please make a note of this. The reason for this is money is 
needed soon after the General Convention is over to pay its ex- 
penses. It also is requested that the election of chapter officers 
take place in October and reported promptly to Recording Secretary 
General. Your president has noticed when a chapter is collecting 
for or building a monument in their town or county, they lose all 
interest in state work, and do not make contributions to any cause. 



26 Minutes op Thirteenth Annual Convention 

Now, this will not do, and is not the right spirit to have, for could 
the state work be carried on if many were collecting for monuments 
at the same time? I must say it savors of selfishness and it would 
not delay the monument many months, if you gave to required ob- 
jects as other chapters give. Please think this over well and see 
yourselves as others see you. 

Collections for Arlington Monument have been very good this 
year, $346.00 being raised, but quite a number of Chapters have not 
contributed at all to this important fund. This is one place where 
a monument of stone or marble should be put worthy of our Con- 
federate Cause, so the whole world can see it and know there was 
a Confederacy and for what we fought. Jt will also be a monument 
to our Chief itan ot ihe Confederate Armies, Robt. E. Lee and on his 
own home-place which was taken from the family by the United 
States Government. 

As State Director for Arlington Monument, your president 
inaugurated the "penny collection" in all the schools of the State, 
where the chapters would take charge of it. We appointed a certain 
day and asked every teacher and child to bring a penny, or more if 
they wished, and by this means $165.00 was raised. Next year we 
hope every chapter in the state will take this collectijn, and ap- 
point a day in November or April. The chapter in the town where 
the collection is taken, is given credit for the amount raised, and it 
is added to what is given by the chapter. Now, this does not count 
for what is expected of your chapter, but just added to it. 

The Chairman of the Shiloh Monument Committee has done 
faithful work for that worthy monument. The chapters do not 
seem to quite understand that this is an object ior which they 
should use their best endeavors, tor we have a number of North 
Carolina dead buried on that grand battlefield. 

We were delighted to hear that the Wilmington Chapter had 
completed the fund for a monument to Hou. George Davis, who 
was a member of President Jefferson Davis' cabinet. We are to be 
present at the laying of the corner stone on Thursday afternoon, 
October 14, 1909, 

It was a debatable question in Georgia where the Wirz Monu- 
ment should be placed, at last it was decided that it would be 
erected at Andersonville, Ga., where Capt Henry Wirz was the 
keeper of the much talked of prison (and lies told about it). It 
was a simple act of justice in erecting it to a man who did his duty 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 27 

and was not responsible for the so called "wrongs" that took place 
there. The United States was responsible for much of it as they 
did not keep their part of the contract and refused to exchange 
prisoners and made medicines and food contrabands of war. On 
some certain day of the year every U. D. C. Chapter is expected to 
give the Confederate Veterans in their vicinity an annual dinner. 
Please make a note of this and never let a year go by without 
giving to them an annual fea^t. The ranks are gradually thinning 
out, and before many more year ;1<]] have passed they will all be 
"gone over the river, to 'rest under the shade of the trees." 

Since the Legislature last February enlarged the State appro- 
priation lor the Soldiers Home in Raleigh aid from our U. D. C. 
Chapters has not been needed and your president was so notified by 
Major B. F. Dixon, State Auditor. There have been many deaths in 
the ranks of the Old Veterans at the Home during the past year. 
The husband of "our Mrs. Brooks" has been in bad health for some- 
time, we are sorry to know. Chapters should remember to send a 
revised list of members, giving deaths, marriages, removals and new 
members to the State Registrar b/ September 1st of each year, so 
that state and chapter reports ot members may agree. Remember 
also that all applications for membership must be signed by one or 
more Veterans, who can testify to the service of the ancestor, or 
they will be returned oy the state Registrar. The report of our 
state Historian has been sent in and will be heard, she has worked 
taithtully this year trying to get a list ot all Confederate Monuments 
in the Scate. i'ne chipcers ought to strive harder to collect all 
historical data, lor it will not be long when it can not be gotten. 
This is one way to preserve our southern historical events. Miss 
Kebecca Cameron, our talented Historian, is ever ready to receive 
aud store such material. 

Many Contederate Monuments have been and are being erected 
all over the state; soon every county in the state will have one. It 
is an historical fact that more monuments have been erected to the 
Confederate Cause in the United States than to any other cause in 
the whole world. This year monuments have been erected and 
corner stones laid in Salisbury, Oxford, Henderson, Franklin 
Macon County and Cornelius. 

During the coming year all chapters can take up the University 
Monument, the one to be erected to the boys who went from school 
to fight for Southern rights and liberty of thought. 



28 Minutes of Thirteenth Annual Convention 

Our State Division has made contributions to the Jefferson Davis 
Home Association, the Beauregard Monument in Louisiana, the 
Jefferson Davis Calendar in New Orleans, a monument in Arkansas 
and sent some articles to the great Louisville, Ky. Confederate 
Bazaar. 

Chapters are reminded that members who are not registered 
with State Registrar are not in good standing, therefore not mem- 
bers. All chapters are required to give every member a certificate 
of membership. Always remember in filling out your credential 
blanks for general convention always put "Proxy, State Chairman," 
even if you have delegates. 

Your State and General tax (20 cents per member) must be paid 
by March 1st and not to be put off until just before convention. 
The money is needed then and must be sent iu by time required. 
Your president was successful in getting an appropriation from the 
legislature in February for $100.00 a year for our North Carolina 
room in the Richmond Confederate Museum. The most of this to 
go towards the endowment fund of $2000 that is desired to be raised 
for the yearly expenses of the North Carolina room. 

A resolution introduced by your president at the General Con- 
vention two years ago, asking that ho.nes be provided for the wives 
and widows of Veterans in every state has not amounted to much 
as yet. It will be "too late" if put off much longer. This Division 
of the U. D. C. owes a vote of thanks and a debt of gratitude to all 
newspapers who so ably assisted us in our U. D. C. work, by timely 
articles in their papers and printing such matter as we requested. 

We have lost by death this year, July 18th 1909, the "Daughter 
of the Confederacy," Mrs. Margaret Howell Davis Hayes, at Colorado 
Springs, Ark. She was a woman of fine character and much loved 
for her good deeds. Your president was traveling in the West and 
was in Colorado Springs the week before she died. i>he was known 
as the "Daughter of the Confederacy." It has been suggested that 
every state adopt June 3rd, President Davis' birthday, as "Universal 
Memorial D<ty." It would be a solemn but pleasant thought to 
know that every daughter from Texas to New York was showing 
her respect in the same loving manner. 

Your president would recommend that each chapter give one 
($1.00) dollar a year to be put in the treasury for a sinking fund for 
extra expenses. Our organization is growing all the time, and the 
State Division has to give to objects outside of the state. 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 29 

The Jefferson Davis Home (where he was born) at Fairview, 
Christian and Todd Counties, Ky., comprising 16 acres of beautiful 
land has been bought for a park as a memorial to our Confederate 
President. The money has been advanced by General Bennett 
Young of Kentucky, a noble and great man, so let every patriotic 
daughter take some part in this good work. Send a subscription of 
$1.00 and up and you will receive a beautiful certificate of member- 
ship in the Jefferson Davis Home Association. The great North and 
West will raise a large fund for the birth place of Abraham Lincoln, 
so let the South honor her brave son who gave his life and labors 
for the land and people he loved. 

There is one thing that we, the U. D. C. could do in the state, 
see that the sons of Veterans organize, for it will not be many years 
until they will have to carry on the work their fathers have under- 
taken. Let every chapter see what can be done in their town and 
encourage the younger men to organize a camp at once. 

New general officers created at Atlanta, Ga.: 3rd Vice President, 
Historian General, Registrar General, Chairman Education. 

Since our last convention Dr. J. William Jones, Chaplain to 
General Robt. E. Lee, Historian of the Confederate States, noted 
scholar and divine, has joined the ranks of the immortal hosts who 
now rest under the shade of the trees of life eternal— the men who 
followed the command of Lee and Jackson. 

General per capita tax must be paid by March 1st, is the new 
ruling by the general convention. 

Mrs. Latta Johnston, of Charlotte, has been made State Regent 

for N. C. room in Richmond Museum. Our state convention should 

take an interest in this work and assist her in every way possible. 

Everv Southern State ought to erect a monument to our only 

President of the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis. 

Children's Certificates signed and sent out, 78— and more. 
In reporting to you the work of the year it is fitting to tell you 
that in your service I have written over 400 letters and cards, 
signed and mailed 407 U. D. C. certificates of membership, visited 
Hickory when that chapter was organized, visited Salisbury when 
their grand and beautiful Confederate monument was unveiled on 
May 10th 1909, was able to get a bill through Legislature appropriat- 
ing $100 a year for the N. C. room in the Richmond Confederate 
Museum, attended the 18th Annual Convention of the South Caro- 



30 Mtnutes of Thirteenth Annual Convention 

Una Division, U. D. C, at Abbeville, December 1st., was elegantly 
entertained. 

Took a greeting from the "Old North State" to the Palmetto 
State and read a paper at their historical meeting: wrote an article 
on the life and character of Gen. Joseph E. Johnston for a book 
called "Heroes in Gray" gotten up by the Tennessee Division and 
edited by Supt. G. W. Sherrill of Paris, Tennessee, and published by 
Claude J. Bell, of Nashville, Tennessee. It is to be used in schools 
as a supplementary reader for Southern children. I can furnish 
you with the book for 30 cents, have issued a card giving some 
facts the Chapters should know: sent out letters to 18 schools and 
Colleges asking for scholarships to be given to young women and 
young men of Southern ancestry. Have written to Harvard asking 
for a scholarship. Wrote post cards to most of the Chapters asking 
them to take a "penny collection" in all schools near them for 
Arlington Monument: attended the Reunion of Confederate Veter- 
ans in Memphis, in June. In August Charlotte entertained the 
State Confederate Veterans Reunion. Mrs. Cornelia Branch Stone 
our beloved President General of the LF. D. C, honored us by her 
presence. It was her first visit to this State since the war, and she 
was hospitably received by the whole city and all Veterans. Her 
words to them were from the heart and inspiring to all and delight- 
ed the old soldiers. 

Many courtesies have been extended to me as your represen- 
tative and as such I deeply appreciated the honor and have done 
all I could to uphold the dignity of the position. 

We indulge the fervent hope that the Administration which 
assumes control after us, will keep up the work we have under- 
taken and add more to it, so that our U. D. C. may grow in material 
strength, education and patriotism, which are our chief sources of 
pride. 

We bespeak for them the considerate and effective support 
which you have always given your President. 

It now becomes my duty to take a final leave of you after hav- 
ing served at three Conventions in the capacity of your State 
President, and in doing so, I wish to offer my profoundest thanks 
to officers and members alike and assure you I heartily appreciate 
all you have done for me in the honors you have conferred upon 
me. 

I can never forget the friendships and personal ties that have 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 31 

been formed during my administration. I am grateful for many 
courtesies and kindnesses shown me and to your great assistance 
and kindly forbearance, I am indebted for whatever success may 
have resulted from my efforts, as President of N. C. Division 
U. D. C. 

I will now retire to the ranks and continue my work for the 
cause we love so well and it will always be with the same pride< 
love and ambition for all that pertains to the Confederate cause and 
my best efforts shall always be exerted for the good of our U. D. C. 
work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. I. W. FAISON, 
President N. C Division U. D. C. 



The Transportation Committee report was next 
called for, though out of order, so as to allow work to 
begin on the certificates. 

report of transportation committee. 



Madam President. 

The Transportation Committee beg leave to submit the follow- 
ing report. Rates were granted by the state railroads on the cer- 
tificate plan. 100 tickets being required to secure the reduced rate 
of one and one half fares plus fifty cents — mileage not accepted. 
Notices were sent to the following city papers — New Berne, 
Raleigh, Charlotte, Asheville, Greensboro, Goldsboro and Wilming- 
ton. Postals were sent to all chapter Presidents and state officers 
notifying them of rates secured.

MRS. B. H. GRIFFIN, Chairman, 
MRS. CUTHBERT MARTIN, 
MRS. A. L. SMITH. 



The Recording Secretary's report then followed, 
giving a full account of the business of the Division, 
and was received. 



32 Minutes of Thirteenth Annual Convention 
report of recording secretary. 



Madam President and Daughters of the Confederacy. • 

The past year has been one of unusual work in the Recording 
Secretary's office, but it has also been one of great pleasure, owing 
to the delightful intercourse with so many of North Carolina's 
enthusiastic Daughters. 

Our members have been steadily growing both in our U. D. C, 
chapters, as well as among the children. The state book shows 88 
Chapters of the North Carolina Division, five of which, D. H. Hill, 
Elizabeth City; Abel A. Shuford, Hickory; Hertford County, Win- 
ton; Halifax, Halifax and Norfleet-Harrill, Murfreesboro, have been 
chartered since last we met. 

26 Children's Chapters are active and in working order, and of 
these Columbus Greys, Whiteville; Jefferson Davis, Scotland Neck; 
Vance County jr., Henderson; and Win. G. Quackenbush have been 
organized since October, 1908. It is to be regretted however that 
several of the older ones, as well as of those later started have been 
reported as disbanded. 

I have sent out to old and new chapters since last convention 
1819 U. D. C. application blanks, for which I have received $5.34, 
most of which came in stamps and all was used for postage in the 
work. There have also been issued 550 application blanks to 
Children's Chapters. 

I have written 537 letters and 431 postal cards. 
Obeying the orders received in Goldsboro, your Recording 
Secretary early entered into correspondence with several firms 
relative to obtaining a new supply of Children's certificates. The 
engraved ones being so expensive a contract was at last made with 
a firm to print and complete 500 for $40 and the work was finished, 
and I have a number with me so those wishing them can get them. 
68 Children's certificates have been sent out this year and the 
money turned over to the State Treasurer Of these 19 belonged 
to the original lot and went to Wadesboro, 12 of the new lot to 
Fayetteville and 37 to Charlotte. 

Mrs, Allison's catechism was published early in the year, under 
a contract by which the sale of them paid for the work, the cost for 
500 copies being $10.00, and thus the Division was at no expense. 
After paying for printing and postage on those ordered I have on 



United Daughters op the Confederacy. 33 

hand a balance of $3.46 cents, which I shall turn over, with your 
permission to the author, for the use of the John Phifer Young 
chapter, as that is her desire. 

With the aid of our President your Secretary has also gotten 
out this year a Division badge to be used at state conventions, and 
particularly to be worn by delegates to the General Conventions. 
Only the smallest number permissible was ordered, so that dele- 
gates may see them, but it is thought advisable that every chapter 
purchase as many as it is entitled to delegates and use them each 
year. The badges can also be obtained by indiyidual Daughters if 
they so desire. 

Through the kindness of Mrs. W. H. Overman and Miss Mary 
Oliver your Secretary has obtained copies of the printed minutes 
of all conventions since the Third, and had intended having them 
bound, but she desired to first obtain the records of those first two 
conventions, and the account of the organization of the North Caro- 
lina Division by that noble woman of your own city, our state 
mother, Mrs. Wm. M. Parsley. Since leaving home I have found 
these records and would like to suggest that the Division order, 
them printed together this year so that all our Minutes may thus 
stand together as a proof that our Division will always be a lasting 
reminder of the honor and love of her who first gave it birth, and 
who until now has been spared to stand a beacon light presenting 
her Daughters ever forwird in work and honor to the cause of the 
the men of the Confederacy. 

State stationery is here, for use of chapters, samples for you' 
take home. 

A new cut for our Division stationer/ has also been obtained, 
it being an exact duplicate of that used by the General organization 
as requested by them. This stationery is for use in all chapters. 
You will find a lot of samples of everything needed in that line on 
the table and on each is marked the cost. Delegates so desiring can 
take some ot these home to show their chapters, or those desiring 
to leave orders for it can give to me later. 

One more thing and I am done. Our Division Minutes are 
getting to be too bulky and hence too costly, and later I would like 
to ask the convention to discuss the matter and see if some 
steps cannot be taken by which all reports can be limited to 
report of simply work done and not an elaboration of what should 
be or the cause. This is merely a question of cost to the Division 



84 Minutes of Thirteenth Annual' Convention 

and rests with you. Each year the matter to be included in the 
Minutes is larger and the cost increases. 

And now Daughters of North Carolina I wish to thank you one 
and all for the hearty support you have given me in all my work 
and for your kindness and forbearance with all short comings. 
Respectfully submitted, 

FANNIE RANSOM WILLIAMS, 

Recording Secretary. 



The Corresponding Secretary's report was next 
read and received. 

CORRESPONDING SECRETARY'S REPORT. 

Madam President. 

The first work of the year was to acknowledge a letter bearing 
the good news that the efforts of the previous year had been fruit- 
ful and that the Mt. Zion Chapter at Cornelius had reorganized and 
would not be disbanded. To hold our ground and keep alive the 
flame of patriotism once kindled always gladdens our hearts. 

Besides the usual notification of chairmen and members of com. 
mittees, and answers to letters of inquiry, there have been two sets 
of circulars sent to each chapter, one regarding the observance of 
white ribbon day in May for the benefit of the Arlington Monument 
and another giving plans for obtaining portraits of Confederate 
heroes, both sent out by the President General, Mrs. Stone. The 
Committees received their notifications later than usual but 
this was due to the fact that your secretary received her statement 
of committees later than usual. 

At the request of our president a circular letter was gotten out 
making an appeal to the colleges that scholarships be given our 
Division of Daughters of theConfederacy to be awarded to descend- 
ants of Confederate soldiers. Your secretary paid for the type 
writing of this letter and sent out 26 of them to the educational 
institutions of the State, from which work the following scholar- 
ships resulted:— 

One of the Julian S. Carr scholarships at the State University 
to be awarded to the son of a veteran; one at Trinity College, 
Durham; one for girls at Oxford Seminary; one at Davenport Col- 



United Daughters of the Confederacy. 35 

lege, Lenoir, for the Literary course, provided the applicant will be 
a boarding pupil; one at Mt. Pleasant Institution (co-educational) 
including room-rent and fees. Statesville College placed our re- 
quest in the hands of the Statesville Chapter aud will co-operate 
for such a scholarship there. 

Wake Forest College gave us the privilege of placing a student 
on an already established scholarship, as are some of the other ones 
mentioned. The award of these scholarships has been in the hands 
of the president. 

With the deepest gratitude for the training, experience, and 
increased depth and breadth of view that has come to me from two 
years work with the fine type of womanhood that makes up our 
N. C. Division, I wish to voice my appreciation for your kindly and 
courteous co-operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MAUDE TURNER FINGER, 

Corres. Sec. N. C. Division.
